Underwater Magic

The University of Hull is one of the partners in the Venus Project. The aim of the work is to preserve underwater archeological  sites by making a completely accurate record of them, and provide a realistic visualisation of what they are actually like to visit. Paul Chapman from the department is giving a presentation of the system later this week, and as a taster he set it up in our visualisation suite and let us have a go on it.


Darren navigates the submersible to the site while Paul watches.

The system provides an eerily accurate version of the view that you would get from a submersible craft if you explored the sites yourself. You can move around just as you would in the submarine, and all artifacts are there just as when they were discovered.

Fantastic stuff.
