The immersive exhibition Horizon of Khufu is going on in Beijing as HTC Corp,a virtual reality pioneer, teams up with partners to leverage cutting-edge digital technologies to create new cultural experiences.

This project is an immersive virtual reality expedition based on the recreation of the interior and surroundings of the Pyramid of Khufu in Egypt. It is driven by HTC VIVE, the virtual reality brand of HTC.

In the Horizon of Khufu digital immersion exhibition The Eternal Pyramid - Mummies and the Legend of Khufu, viewers will wear HTC VIVE FOCUS 3 headsets. In addition to gaining a close understanding of the internal structure and historical context of the pyramid, they will also be able to explore areas that have never been open to the public before, and even travel as far as 4,500 years ago to uncover the mystery of ancient Egyptian civilization.

During the immersive 45-minute virtual reality experience, the audience can not only feel the excitement of overlooking the panoramic view of the Giza Plateau when climbing to the top of the Great Pyramid, but also go back to the fourth dynasty to sail on a solar boat on the Nile River and enjoy the infinite beauty.

Charles Huang, global senior vice president of HTC Vive, said combining technology with culture has always been HTC VIVE's vision. "We also always uphold the concept of openness and inclusiveness, and want to continuously break down the barriers between the virtual and real world, and refresh people's experiences of exploring the world."
