SiyonaTech Case Study - Bringing History to Life

Industry: Education
Solution: Virtual Reality App (iOS & Android)

Use case/challenge:

The objective was to recreate a historical castle and demonstrate how an interactive education experience could be delivered using Virtual Reality.



The 14th century Donnington castle situated near Newbury was selected for the project. Currently, only the striking twin towered gatehouse remained but most of the castle was in ruins. SiyonaTech recreated the castle from the original drawings using 3D modelling and deployed it through an interactive VR App. The virtual visitor could don a Google Cardboard headset and experience the splendour of the gatehouse room as it was in the past. An interactive quiz, popping out of a chest, was included to teach key facts and a leader-board to keep things competitive.
