Virtual Reality PEACE museum, Globally?

#VRpeaceMuseum #VR4Peace

Virtual Reality PEACE museum Globally? Is it possible to tell and take a viewer back and even into the present world’s and events of famous peacemakers confronting the issues, times, places that shaped their lives? Could deeper “empathy” with these VR AR moments deepen our understanding, purpose and place in the history of peace making and what we can do?
Imagine seeing the world through Mother Theresa eyes, YOU being her, walking and living in her shoes through your VR headset or viewer.Imagine YOU on her daily tasks of caring for the poorest in a leper colony, confronted by those in such suffering seeking compassion?

Imagine you were Martin Luther King on his triumphant day delivering through his eyes his famous speech “I have a Dream” to over 500,000 supporters in Washington D.C.? Or Gandhi leading his first act of peaceful non violent residence, leading striking Indian Railroad workers in 1908 South Africa while facing down a locomotive.

Would such a VR Peace Museum realize the power of “greater empathy” promised now by so many in the rapidly growing virtual reality industry?

These plus hundreds of more virtual reality experiences all seen through the eyes of the peacemaker would be yours and all of ours world wide. Adding new peacemakers, many living to the story as well. What could you feel, what did you feel in just reading this short description of the VR Peace museum project?

Would such a global VR project deliver the “empathy experience” so many define the future of VR for?

On September 4, the United Nations invited peace walkway artist, film maker Paul-Felix Montez to speak at the U.N. in New York City for World Peace day on Sept.16, 2016. Presenting his global project the Peace Walkway, 100 miles for peace project which includes the VR museum app.

It is a simple project, low cost, nearly effortless to install world wide. The Peace Walkway project is a simple vision of locating one, mile-long peace art monument in 100 different locations (cities, towns, and parks, etc.) around the world. Each peace walkway Monument is one mile long made up of 250 different bronze plaques commemorating significant world heroic peacemakers — men and women whose courage and commitment to our greater humanity have changed our lives forever.

The free global walkway app will use augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) offering full bios for each peacemaker and the ability for anyone at one walkway location to connect and chat to another person at any of the installed monuments in the world. Thus everyone using the app gets to converse with anyone from anyone in the world.

How do the AR and VR apps work?

Using the free Augmented Reality App, simply point it at any given plaque, and two things happen. First, an Augmented reality image of the famous Peacemaker will appear, click on that image and a full biographical timeline of the entire life of that peacemaker is yours to explore. As you explore the story, a symbol [VR] or virtual reality will be seen along the way.

Click on that [VR] symbol, put on your virtual reality goggles such as Google cardboard and get the opportunity to view as if you were that famous peacemaker various moments and events through their eyes. From Martin Luther King ’s speech “I have a Dream” given in Washington D.C. to Mother Theresa’s daily caring for those in a leper colony, and all seen by you through their point of view.
