Immersive VR Prototype

Immersive Histories: Dam Busters

Immersive Histories: Dam Busters is an immersive virtual reality prototype which allows audiences to experience the famous World War Two ‘Dam Busters’ raid from a new and unique perspective.

Developed with historical consultation from the Imperial War Museums, Immersive Histories: Dam Busters is an accurate portrayal of events of Operation Chastise, placing audiences in the position of the Wireless Operator on board G-George; the first aircraft to attack the Möhne dam.

Surrounded with a physical set of the Lancaster interior, audiences are immersed with virtual reality visuals, spatialised audio and haptic feedback, successfully capturing a sense of what it may have been like to experience the historical event first hand.

The prototype was supported by Digital Catapult and Arts Council England as a part of CreativeXR.
