Virtual reality is certainly bringing a lot of technological advancements to the gaming world, however, as Reload Studios realized, it also holds the potential to advance the cultural lives of people around the world. Reload Studios is designing a virtual reality experience that brings the paintings found in the Wolfson Room in London's Courtauld Museum to people's very own homes. By putting the headset on, the gallery will be virtually recreated around you, with the voice of best-selling author Neil Gaiman as your tour guide.

Bringing famous impressionist paintings from the likes of Renoir, Monet and Manet to your very home, this technology would make places like museums and art galleries accessible to everyone across the globe.

Like Samsung does with its virtual reality experience of swimming with sharks, Reload Studios is giving people a similar chance to see and do things that they may never experience otherwise.
