About

What is Archaeoscan:

Imagine yourself exploring mysterious tombs and secret places built before the roman empire started. Picture yourself walking around, jumping or swimming underwater in order to reach secret rooms.
Every single detail, every single stone is 100% authentic. And everything looks so real, so scary; the shadows, the light reflections on the wet rock, the echo of your steps.

If you like the idea you should consider Archeoscan!

This project is about building a Virtual Reality application based on a real, authentic archaeological site. The place we decided to reconstruct is an Etruscan Necropolis, located in a forsaken and wild location in Italy, close to Rome.

The location has been already 3d scanned and reconstructed; every single detail has been reproduced, with an accuracy close to 5 millimeters.

We aim to build a virtual reality application for iPhone, Android, Windows and MacOS systems; Archaoescan is compatible with Oculus Rift too, and we can assure you that visiting an authentic Necropolis that way will blow your mind!

With this project we want to:

  • Provide a technologically advanced platform, were everybody, from the archaeology lover to the casual visitor can enjoy virtual reconstructions of existing archaeological sites. The quality of the experience has to be breathtaking, with the same graphical quality you expect from a modern FPS video game.
  • Preserve forever this archaeological site in a digitally reconstructed, tridimensional representation, with an accuracy close to 5 millimeters. Places that are otherwise destined to deteriorate and disappear.

Why Kickstarter? 

Our goal on Kickstarter is to get Archaeoscan into the hands of early adopters and archaeology lovers like you as soon as possible. We want you to be involved, whether to provide feedback on the experience, or to develop new content that will blow the platform open to wider audiences.

Risks and challenges

We have worked very hard to collect data and work on the software as much as we can before this campaign started. As a result, we are near ready to build a beta version of Archaeoscan. 


However, there is always the risk of unforeseen challenges and delays when working on an ambitious project as Archaoescan. If an unexpected issue arises, we are ready to resolve it in fastest way possible with the best results.

We appreciate your support, and we are excited to have you join us as part of this mission!
