Museum of the World Ocean

Exhibit the deep-sea submersible Mir-1 that was used for exploring Titanic debris.

The submersible is sealed shut for preservation, the exhibit can only be viewed from the outside.

Using the resources of VR technology and 3D graphics, the VARWIN team has recreated the submersible in detail. We’ve replicated operating processes of all the systems of the machine and made the project interactive. This VR solution gave the museum visitors an opportunity not only to explore the Mir-1 submersible, but also to dive 3.7 mi (6 km) into the virtual ocean and feel part of history.
