Virtual exhibition now available as a mobile app
As of today, the first virtual museum exhibition dedicated to Nikola Tesla is available as a mobile app, both in Serbian and English, as well as on www.doziviteslu.com or www.nikolateslaexperience.com website. The application was designed for mobile and VR devices and as such, completely follows on Tesla’s vision according to which spatial and temporal distance lose its importance.
The cooperation between Direct Media and Digital Mind has led to a breakthrough in the use of technology for educational purposes, and the first virtual museum exhibition of this kind in the world was created. The significance of Vitomir Jevremović’s idea to use modern technology and revive the greatest scientist of all time was recognized by Direct Media, which donated the exhibition to Nikola Tesla Museum in the year marking 15 years of the company’s successful business and 160 years since the birth of the scientist.
“Through Tesla Experience application we want to enable all Tesla’s admirers from around the world who are not able to visit the museum to enjoy the unique experience of interacting with Tesla. Nowadays, modern technology makes art and science more accessible than ever, and in this way, we would like to remind people of the part of Tesla’s doctrine which advocates the use of technology for the well-being of the whole society,” says Jovan Stojanović, Managing Director of Direct Media.
After the launch of the application, which can be downloaded from Google Play or Apple App Store, Tesla Experience virtual exhibition will be available to everyone using HTC VIVE or Oculus Rift devices, as well as users of VR-capable phones or Gear VR.
“As a team, we knew what we were dealing with, but for someone who has never experienced virtual reality, there is no way to imagine what it is like when Nikola Tesla talks to you in person. It is a fortunate circumstance that VR technology has advanced in the year when we mark 160 years since Tesla’s birth and that we have been given this amazing opportunity right now to make one of the first VR museums in the world,” said Vitomir Jevremović, author of the exhibition and Director of Digital Mind.
