Chernobyl VR Project is a virtual experience which allows you to visit the ghost town of Pripyat and the Chernobyl Power Plant and learn about their history. Together, let’s find out the future that was lost. It is the very first virtual tour around the Chernobyl and Pripyat area for all major VR platforms: Oculus and PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, and Samsung Gear VR solution. All in beautifully rendered 3D photogrammetrical scans of the locations and buildings, that are basically a digital copies of these places, combined with spherical photography and 360 videos.
We decided that Chernobyl VR Project should not be a simply commercial project. We aimed to reach the people, for whom the disaster had an intimate, private, and sometimes family aspect to it. We met lots of people who had been near Chernobyl when the disaster happened. We also managed to reach very famous people willing to support our project, among others the Nobel Prize winner Svetlana Alexievich (author of Chernobyl Prayer) and the legendary boxer Vitali Klitschko, now Mayor of Kiev.
