Time machines are usually the stuff of science fiction, and whether or not this is something that humans will be able to achieve one day is really anyone’s guess. However, founder Lucas has created a pretty awesome alternative, where through devices like Snap’s Spectacles, he has created a virtual season machine that causes him is travelling in the time in a manner of speaking.
Basically what Lucas has done is while wearing the Snap Spectacles, he has recorded his life and using that recorded footage, it will let him revisit any moment in time that was recorded in virtual reality. Granted this only causes Lucas revisit what he’s recorded and it also doesn’t tell him treated with his “past”, but it is still a pretty awesome and fun project nonetheless.
It is a bit of an exaggeration to call it period tour, but you could think of it as being a more elaborated room of browsing your past photos and videos, but with the added advantage of being able to see it in a first-person perspective thanks to the Spectacles wearable. The downside to his current setup is that Spectacles merely allows for recording up to a time at a time, plus he also needed a bunch of hard drives only to preserve everything.
However, like we said, it’s still a pretty awesome project and if you have about 30 times or so to spare, you can check out his project in the video above.
