75 years ago today marks one of the most infamous events in American history – the attack on Pearl Harbor. The military strike by Japan took America by surprise and ignited its involvement in World War II. Life VR has brought this moment to life, allowing you to experience the event that forever altered global powers, but most importantly, the lives of those lost and still living today.
Remembering Pearl Harbor is a virtual reality experience brought forth by Life VR in partnership with AMD and HTC. The immersive experience hurls you into the midst of the atrocity as you experience Pearl Harbor through the eyes of one survivor: Lt. Jim Downing.
Remembering Pearl Harbor is not just a historical experience, but an educational one. The VR experience is separated into three acts revealing both the impact and aftermath of the attack. Through the eyes of Lt. Jim Downing, you will witness the destruction of the attack, the families affected on the home front and Downing’s life 75 years later.
Remembering Pearl Harbor is available on Viveport for the HTC Vive. It is also available at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York City today. For more VR news and updates, follow us on Twitter.
