Egypt’s Pyramid Of Cheops Recreated With Virtual Reality In Paris
With the aid of virtual reality, the Arab World Institute (IMA) in Paris will beginning on Tuesday provide visitors with an immersive exploration of one of the seven wonders of the world. Visitors can explore the interior of the Cheops Pyramid, travel along the Nile in a dugout, or watch a pharaoh being embalmed.
This adventure, “The Horizon of Cheops,” is ongoing through October 2nd through one of Egypt’s most significant treasures
The visitor is taken to Egypt more than 4.500 years ago for 45 minutes. This 146-meter-tall stone structure, which was constructed between 2.590 and 2.565 BC, was once the biggest structure ever created by humans. It was constructed to house the final palace of King Cheops and continues to captivate tourists from all over the world.
Equipped with a helmet and a backpack, the visitor is immediately transported into a virtual world, first entering the center of the pyramid before walking through its galleries.
The visitor travels primarily on a flying carpet made of stone in a setting similar to the 1,001 Nights.
The enormous cat-shaped Egyptian deity Bastet and “Mona,” a tour guide who is in charge of explaining the significance of the gods and the engineering achievements involved in building the pyramids, serve as his guides.
This immersive event may accommodate up to fifty participants at once. The event costs 29 euros per person and 24 euros per person for groups of at least four people.
