A couple years after the Khufu and Giza projects, Dassault Systèmes* are back into a brand new historical 3D adventure. This time, it’s nothing less than the most visited capital in the world, the City of Lights, also know as Paris.
“Paris 3D Saga” is an educative and entertaining journey in the history of Paris beginning 20 centuries ago. In the tour you can relive historical moments like the French revolution and the construction of the Tour Eiffell.
Dassault Systèmes releasing three ways to experience the Paris 3D Saga: a live event (if you have the chance to be in Paris tonight), an online 3D experience, as well as an iPad app.
Mehdi Tayoubi, Vice President of Digital Strategy & Experiential Dassault system, said: “This is the first time we have a digital model of Paris. Virtual reality offers a great advantage compared to the previous project. It may be useful to archaeologists to make new discoveries. We are building for the future, other projects like this. We have shown that virtual reality is a real tool for research, education and cultural exploration for the public. “
At a first glance, Paris 3D might just look as a video game. It’s not. Each step of the reconstitution was verified and validated with history experts. An history committee under the supervision of Didier Busson (history expert and archaeologist of Paris city), ensured that the project was scientifically and architecturally accurate. Because in the end, whether it’s for our customers from any industry or for an historical reconstitution, their technology and approach serve the same intent: it’s not about building virtual universes for the sake of virtuality; it’s about building virtual universes that are the closest to the real world, for the sake or reality. Or, in a single word, 3D EXPERIENCE.
IPad – mobile experience
