About this project

Welcome to our Kickstarter page. 

OUR MISSION

Coming from religious backgrounds, we want to use virtual reality technology for exposing and educating people to the locations, structures, and geography from religious scripts using a 3D world and virtual reality. 

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?

Technology is now at a point where it is possible for us to be immersed into the settings of religious text like never before. Given its significant religious history we have decided to start with ancient Jerusalem, year 50.

WHAT IS VIRTUAL REALITY?

Virtual Reality (VR), sometimes referred to as immersive multimedia, is a computer-simulated environment that can simulate physical presence in places in the real world or imagined worlds.

VR JERUSALEM

The VR Jerusalem application will be made available to download as an executable for Windows computers at a $1 donation. If we surpass our Kickstarter goal, we look to publish the app to other platforms like Samsungs GearVR and make the application free for all to enjoy.

HITTING OUR GOAL:

$25,000 : Hitting our goal will allow us to further build out the city, make it look great, and add interactive elements to it.

DELIVERY DATE:

We will make VR Jerusalem available for download by mid-June 2016.

SURPASSING OUR GOAL:

This is how we hope to make the VR Jerusalem experience better if we surpass our goal of $25,000!

$25,001+ : The VR application will be made available for any to download for free. A donation will be encouraged to help with future development.

$30,000+ : The VR application will be made available for free for the Samsung GearVR device.

$50,000+ : The VR application will also be made available as a web app on all major browsers.

$75,000+ : The VR Jerusalem VR & Web experiences will get a multi-user feature.

$100,000+ : Upgrades to VR Jerusalem VR & Web experiences based on Kickstarter supporter feedback.

 Thank you for your support and have a blessed day!

Risks and challenges

The only setbacks we see may involve issues around the Windows supported virtual reality headset's commercial release date and any related HMD software changes. We have VR developers on the team that can quickly adopt to any of the software changes.
