Today is the 89th birthday of Anne Frank and Oculus is teaming with Force Field VR and a major charity to mark the occasion in a unique way.
Releasing on Oculus Rift, Go and Gear VR today, Anne Frank House VR will give you a chance to tour the house in which Frank hid during Nazi occupation of Amsterdam from 1942 to 1944. Lasting 25 minutes, you’ll explore every room in the house, which now serves as a museum open to the public. VR support will give you a fully immersive look inside.
“One of the most promising and important uses of VR is how it can help us see history and current events from a whole new perspective that is more immersive and powerful than any other medium,” Tina Tran, Developer Strategy of Oculus, said in a prepared statement. “We were humbled by the chance to work with the Anne Frank House and Force Field VR to help bring this tour into a format that can be experienced by anyone around the world.”
