VR to Recreate Hiroshima Bombing

VR to Recreate Hiroshima Bombing

Over two years, a group of Japanese high school students has been painstakingly producing a five-minute virtual reality experience that recreates the sights and sounds of Hiroshima before, during and after the US dropped an atomic bomb on the city 73 years ago Monday.
Japanese Students Use VR to Recreate Hiroshima Bombing
By transporting users back in time to the moment when a city was turned into a wasteland, the students and their teacher hope to ensure that something similar never happens again.
The Aug. 6, 1945, bombing of Hiroshima killed 140,000 people. Three days later, a second US atomic bomb killed 70,000 people in Nagasaki. Japan surrendered six days after that, ending World War II.
"Even without language, once you see the images, you understand," said Mei Okada, one of the students working on the project at a technical high school in Fukuyama, a city about 100 kilometres (60 miles) east of Hiroshima. "That is definitely one of the merits of this VR experience."
To recreate Hiroshima, the students studied old photographs and postcards and interviewed survivors of the bombing to hear their experiences and get their feedback on the VR footage. They used computer graphics software to add further details such as lighting and the natural wear and tear on building surfaces.
The students are working through summer vacation in a classroom without air conditioning, as temperatures reach 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit). With the survivors ageing, Hasegawa said, it's a race against time.
