Are you ready to plunge into virtual reality tour of Mir Castle?
Minsk software developers created a multifunctional mobile platform for tourists that can bring you to Mir Castle, wherever you are.
How it works
Just install “Mir Castle VR” application on your phone and buy special cardboard glasses.
Note that a smartphone should be from 4.7 to 5.5 inches so it can easily fit in a cardboard with lenses for viewing virtual reality tours.
Then just open the application, insert your phone into the cardboard and travel around the castle with friends and family.
The app also has an audio guide, a heatmap of the zones with the greatest tourist activity and the rating of the place based on the visitors’ impressions.
Developers also plan to integrate the existing content into social networks, improve the online quests, add detailed navigation and realistic animation.
While real tours can be expensive, you will have a unique possibility to enjoy recreated interiors of the XVIII century or see the castle from a bird’s eye view just for 21 Belarusian rubles (~$10.72).
Besides, you won’t have to spend money on unusual souvenirs – the glasses will allow you to show 360-degree panoramic views to your friends and loved ones who have never been there.
Belarus is known for their IT talents and successful software projects. Belarus-made face swapping app MSQRD was named among top 5 trending apps of 2016 by Google.
Meanwhile Belarus is preparing for a big revolutiom in IT sphere. Crucial changes that should turn Belarus into an IT-heaven were announced by President Alexander Lukashenko several months ago.
