Want to relive the nightmare of 9/11? Well, now you can, thanks to this new virtual reality project.
A new virtual reality project called "[08:46]" purports to recreate the worst attack on American soil.
Yes, you read that right. It was created for Oculus Rift users, and delivers an account of the September 11th, 2001, attacks. The title is a reference to the exact time American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower.
The "experience" - for lack of a better term - according to the website, "makes you embody an office worker in the North Tower of the World Trade Center during the 9/11 events."
The project was created by a group of French university students, who, in a not-so-bright move, provided their LinkedIn profiles on the website. They claim, in an interview with Tech Insider, their intentions in creating this "experience" are good. The VR project was produced "as a tribute to the victims of our generation-shaping experience." Anthony Kraft, the creative director behind "[08:46]," told Tech Insider:
"We worked with a lot of references, from an interview with a survivor to plans of the floors or journalistic works such as '102 minutes' to be precise about the events and the human dynamics in the towers."
We refuse to relive this nightmare. But here's a preview below, in case you're curious.
What do you make this? Is this in bad taste despite the creators' good intentions? Sound off below.
