Donate on Kickstarter and help bring history to life
Scott and Alexander have always had a strong bond, fueled by their shared passion for virtual reality. Together, they have spent countless hours exploring digital landscapes and building intricate worlds from scratch. But it was their latest project that truly brought them closer than ever before. Using their combined expertise, they created an app that teaches American History through an immersive VR experience.
Working together on this project was a true labor of love for Scott and Alexander. They spent countless late nights refining every detail, from the visuals to the historical accuracy of the content. Seeing their hard work come to life was an incredibly rewarding experience for both of them. But what they were most proud of was the fact that they had created something that could help educate people in a fun and engaging way.
