Week 2- Back Brief Presentation

Back Brief:

The Museum of English Rural Life (MERL) run by the University of Reading is a museum documenting the progressive change in the farming and countryside of England. The museum contains an extensive range of objects, archives, films, books and photographs that are of national importance. Due to its temporary closure for redevelopment, this has resulted in no access for patrons. As technology is rapidly improving this has opened the opportunity to create a prototype virtual museum of MERL. Using the latest technology such as, 3D modelling software, Unreal Engine 4 and the Oculus Rift the aim is to create a different experience in viewing the contents and surroundings of the museum. It also gives the opportunity to those who are unable to access the museum due to mobility or socio- cultural difficulties.
