Description: Who is your favourite historical figure? Would you like to have dinner with someone from the past? If you could bring someone back to life in VR, who would that be? VR Guest is an experience in which you get to have dinner with Albert Einstein, Mozart, and Kleopatra. Enjoy watching them have a thoughtful dialogue, and ask questions at the end!

Virtual Reality has allowed these giants of history to come alive in an unprecedented way! Enjoy their company, and learn from these extraordinary figures while sitting at a table having a virtual dinner. And enjoy the amazing virtual environment created for the four of you! Included is a volume control for characters’ voices and background music. “Although extensive research was done for the production of this app – this is still a work of fiction intended to promote curiosity and discussion.”

Review: VR Guest is the chance to sit around a table and listen to the talk that some of the worlds greatest minds would possibly have. Albert Einstein, Kleopatra and even Mozart all have a chat with each other in a fact-filled, light conversational way. With some great educational content and good voice acting, I found the tone of the conversion happening in front of me to be interesting if a little ruined by the poor animation. Someone out there somewhere will find this a fascinating, educational use of VR that they can sit down and watch for hours (because that is how much content there is!) but that person isn’t me and I found myself getting rather bored. But I do appreciate someone trying something new in VR.
