    Abstract

    The Mary Rose museum in Portsmouth have many artefacts which are stored away from the public as they are too valuable or fragile to be on display. The museum wishes to display these items to the public in a safe and secure way, whilst at the same time modernise their exhibition. This paper aims to find a solution by transforming the artefacts into 3D objects and implement them into a virtual environment. It will research possibilities to utilise the Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 (Rift DK2) in a combination with the Leap Motion Controller, to create a unique experience without risking any harm to the artefacts. Going through what virtual reality (VR) is and how it impacts the user, this paper looks at the research done within the field as well as where VR might evolve to in the future. However, there are still subjects to be discussed and research on the impact of the user and the usable field of this technology within the society.
