What would it feel like going to this city in VR? This looks so much like an equal to any modern first world european city (save the technology). I wanna tour the ancient roman empire in VR one day complete with ancient roman costume and probably studying greek philosophies, latin language and roman history, etc... makes me wonder how persia, babylon, sumeria, egypt looked like as well...

All you need is primitive VR (Oculus Rift) and a more advanced but equally malleable version of Minecraft & the possibilities are endless.

Nice video find, though the graphics are't real enough. Should have used a game engine lol.

the reconstruction of the Roman Forum is a not very precise. the colusseum is very close to Circus maximus and the acquadatum next to it is not so magestic.  Also in the colusseum in each door there was a statue. These statues had later be recycle at the end of the Roman empire since the major cities of the Mediterrean became Constantinople and Ravenna.

I might rather visit greece. Romans were grand, but I'd like to experience the culture that basically birthed western civilization.
Be rational and loving.

A culture that is so different between each city, you might as well give up on the origin. Unless you look towards Macedonia.

Hey, for all we know, once VR is really up and running, going to the Colusseum to watch gladiator fights might once again become the national pasttime.  At least this time they're not dying for real.


The only thing we ever want is more

Yeah, I know. I was thinking Athens sans slavery.
