Client – Playing the past is the 21st century version of re-enactment. It allows students and enthusiasts to recreate past events or visit places they would otherwise never see in their lives.

Challenge – Give people access to a long-lost shipwreck off the coast of Holland. And make it as realistic as possible.

The GRIN-solution – From pictures and blueprints of the ship we created a 3D diving simulator. It allows you to swim through cracks, look under ledges, peer into portholes and study the shipwreck as if you were really there (but without the getting wet and cold and oxygen-deprived part). We even added cloudy water and annoying undercurrents to make it more real.

Technology in use: Unity3D, 3DsMax

Partners: Playing the Past
