TIME Elects HTC Vive To Launch The VR Experience For ‘Remembering Pearl Harbor’

HTC partnered with TIME to remember Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor and bring it to life in an immersive VR experience on its 75th anniversary.

For TIME’s LifeVRDeluxe VR and HTC Vive partnered in the production to bring the events to a remembrance from the perspective of Lt. Jim Downing, among the oldest living survivors of the Pearl Harbor attack.

Lt. Downing’s voice guides users through the experience. Users can walk around the room and interact with the objects that are displayed, even issues of LIFE magazine from that period.

Here’s the 360° trailer of the project:


Liz Ronk, photo editor for Time describes the project by saying,

Drawing from the extensive holdings of the Life archive, we were able to feature original issues of Life magazine that would have been in the homes of Americans at the time along with photos by the staff photographers throughout the experience.

In commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the day of Pearl Harbor Attack, Dec. 7th, 1941, the event will be presented at an exhibition that will be open at the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum in New York City on Tuesday and Wednesday, and the Newseum in Washington, D.C., from December 5 to December 11.

According to TIME, a full-length 360° edition of the ‘Remembering Pearl Harbor’ experience will be released in the LIFE VR app later this month.
