Martello Tower VR Reconstruction

Luminous where commissioned by the Suffolk Coast & Heaths as part of their touching the Tide project to create a virtual model of a Martello Tower. These small defensive forts are common across the South East coast however access to the public is limited. The touching the tide projects is aimed at engaging with the local community to show them what these towers where like and used for. The brief for the project was to build from laser scan data, an authentic interpretation of what a tower would be like in the original Napoleonic era and also WWII, when many where reinstated as lookout towers.

To do this we chose to use the Unreal Games engine. This solution provided the best visual fidelity and rendering available and also allowed us to create one version that could be ported to different devices. The results are a fully immersive virtual tour that can be experienced either as a video, desktop application, full oculus rift version or 360 images for Gear VR.
