Experience a functioning mine in the 1950’s
A world first: social VR
At the C-mine Expedition experience centre visitors can experience life in the coalmine during the 1950’s at this industrial heritage site. This is a world first where social VR is employed in a museum.
Creation of young versions of miners still alive
This experience allows visitors to see their fellow visitors and their movements in the virtual world, making it a social experience.
Additionally, 3D-scans of actual miners were used to make the virtual miners in the VR experience.
Another feature is the virtual interactive “spotlight” on the visitor’s helmet that functions like a real miner’s headlamp.
Several special effects are used.
