Digital Hampi Labs

The project aims to give a tangible output that helps to experience, visualise and relate to the narratives present in the ruins of Hampi, incorporating storytelling and Virtual Reality (VR). It attempts to construct a knowledge-base in the historical, technical, and cultural and design aspects of that time period, recreating the architecture and social life. The project started with understanding the historical background, stories and narratives of the place and subsequently went through field visit, explorations, narrative and technological inputs, prototyping and user testing. The final output was a mobile VR application with 3D virtual world and Graphical User Interface (GUI), allowing the user to experience the virtual environment of Hampi in the past.
