Description: VRND - Notre Dame CathedralThe VRND Demo is an exciting new application that takes you into a REAL virtual reality model of the famous Notre-Dame of Paris Cathedral.
Imagine for a moment, that you are flying through the air. You open your eyes and find yourself within an enormous eight-hundred year-old gothic cathedral, a monument to man's ingenuity and perseverence. Napoleon, Mary Queen of Scots, how they adored this wondrous edifice.
You find yourself soaring up to touch a cold arched ceiling, basking in the warm multi-colored sunlight pouring down on you from magnificent forty-foot stained-glass windows. You pause for a few moments to re-focus your eyes and you slowly descend to the cool, dark marble tile floor. You catch your reflection in a gilded candelabra- your glowing aura emanates around you- slowly pulsing. You catch a shape moving out of the shadowed aisles- a familiar figure. He stops a few feet away and beckons you to follow him. Meanwhile, hundreds of other ethereal glows race past you- exploring, communicating, experiencing one of the most intense real-time simulations ever created.
Now imagine all of this running on your home PC!
