The Holy Land in Virtual Reality

Oct 24, 2019

Thanks to modern technology and some very dedicated people, there is a really cool way to learn about the Holy Land without leaving your home. You can go there in virtual reality thanks to something called The Octagon Project. I just discovered this site and it has a bunch of virtual reality videos of the Holy Land.

The Octagon Project – VR videos

Even if you don’t have a VR headset (which I don’t), you can still watch the videos on YouTube and navigate around the room using your mouse. It’s very impressive. The videos can be a bit choppy, but that’s because they are giving you time to turn the scene around and look at everything. There is also a narrator who explains what you’re looking at – so it’s kind of like being on a guided tour without leaving your home.

I watched a few of these videos – but I also don’t want to watch too many, so that the sites I’ll see in person will be a surprise. It’s strange to think that, in a few months, I won’t be seeing these sites in virtual reality. I’ll be seeing them in actual reality. Wow.
