The Great Pyramid in 3D, From the BBC Series Ancient Invisible Cities explores possibilities of virtual archaeology by scanning and digitally rebuilding historical architecture – in this case, the Great Pyramid of Giza. In this unique form of presentation, visitors can choose between different paths to explore the ancient structure, moving interactively in a 3D environment with stereoscopic 360° video at 12K resolution. The experience is enhanced by a specially created soundtrack and live expert commentary. The contents were adapted for Deep Space 8K by the Ars Electronica Futurelab in the context of Immersify by creating a Unity 3D application, allowing users to move interactively in the three-dimensional space and to freely control their field of view. Thus, interactive elements are woven into the storytelling.
