Virtual Time Travels? Public History and Virtual Reality
Christian Bunnenberg
In Spring 2018 the science fiction thriller “Ready Player One” filmed by Steven Spielberg and based on the novel of the same name by Ernest Cline is expected to start in cinemas. The trailer gives a first impression of the story of a dystopian future staged with bombastic pictures in which millions of people flee into the virtual reality(ies) of the game OASIS (Ontologically Anthropocentric Sensory Immersive Simulation).[1] Only a vision of the future? Not at all, Virtual Reality (VR) is already used in the Public History of the present time.
