Harvard Gets Immersive VR with Giza 3D

Peter Der Manuelian tells me that Giza 3D at Harvard’s immersive virtual reality Viz Center is up and running, and the 170 undergraduate students in his “Pyramid Schemes” Egyptian archaeology class are loving it!

And for a more in depth idea of the content being shared and discussed in the Viz Center, here’s a Peter-guided video though and early version of Giza 3D. 

I’d love to hear from any of you Harvard students or faculty who’ve tested the experience.  In real life, how is it?
