Greenlit!
Description
Release date: May 2016
This is a free virtual reality experience built for the HTC Vive. You will be transported to a cozy Victorian-era smoking room, from which you can examine several hundred antique stereo cards from the late 19th century through the early 20th century. These are vintage photographs that were captured in stereo, then viewed with an optical stereoscope to see the 3D effect. See old images of the pyramids, the mountains of Colorado, Native American villages, and more, all in 3D! This is an unusual opportunity to mix technology from over a century ago with modern virtual reality!

How it works: The application takes the left and right images from the stereo cards and renders them separately for each eye on the projection screen in the room. As a result, when you look at the projection screen, you see the combined stereoscopic image (although it looks flat in the screenshots). You cycle through the collection of stereocards using the Vive motion controller triggers.

Currently there are over 300 images built into the application, with plans to add more in the future. I searched through thousands of images and personally tested them out to find the ones that produce the best 3D effect and least discomfort for the viewer, then cropped and optimized each image to look as good as possible on display. This game will be free-to-play to help promote history education and the adoption of VR.

Upcoming Plans:
-Oculus Rift support via SteamVR with gamepad controls
-Steam Workshop support
-More images to look through
