The first museum exhibition in virtual reality dedicated to Nikola Tesla is now available on a mobile app, in Serbian and English, as well as through the website or www.doziviteslu.com and www.nikolateslaexperience.com. The app is designed for mobile and VR devices and, as such, it completely follows Tesla’s vision in which spatial and temporal distance lose their significance.
Collaboration of companies Direct Media and Digital Mind resulted in a breakthrough in the use of technology for educational purposes, and the first virtual museum exhibition of its kind in the world was created. The idea of Vitomir Jevremović, to use modern technology to bring to life the greatest scientist of all time, Direct Media recognized and donated the exhibition to the Museum of Nikola Tesla in Belgrade last year, the year when the company celebrated 15 years of successful business, and 160 years since the birth of the scientist.
“Through the app ‘Dozivi Teslu’ (‘Experience Tesla’) we want to introduce a unique experience of interaction with Tesla to all his admirers from around the world who are unable to visit the museum. Modern technologies of today make art and science more accessible than ever, and in this way we would like to remind the people that part of Tesla’s doctrine was the use of technology for the well-being of the whole society,” said Jovan Stojanović, director of Direct Media.
With the launch of the mobile app that can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple App Store, the exhibition “Experience Tesla” in VR will be available to everyone on the HTC VIVE or Oculus Rift devices, as well as owners of VR-capable phones or Gear VR.
“We as a team knew what we were dealing with, but someone who has never experienced virtual reality has no way to imagine how it will look when Nikola Tesla himself speaks to you. It was a set of fortunate coincidences that the VR technology has matured right in the year that marks the 160th anniversary of Tesla’s birth, and so we’ve been given this incredible opportunity to make one of the first VR museums in the world,” said Vitomir Jevremović, author of exhibition and director of Digital Mind.
What’s it like to stand next to Tesla in his hydroelectric power plant at Niagara Falls, assist him in Colorado Springs or on the platform of the tower on Long Island? What was Tesla’s room in the famous hotel ‘New Yorker’ like, and what was his vision of the future? These scenes are part of the VR exhibition, which can be experienced in the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade, and as of today through the mobile app at www.doziviteslu.com/#aplikacija
