Timelooper is a brilliant new virtual reality app that is designed to make it possible for you to travel back in time and witness great events from history. All you need is a smartphone, the app and a cardboard headset and you can travel back in time and view important historical events.

The app can be used to offer a unique historical perspective on your environment in places like London. It makes use of motion detection to make it possible for you to move your gaze around your virtual environment. Videos are location-based, so you actually have to be in London if you want to witness the Great Fire of London from 1666 for example.

This virtual reality app is helping to take tourism technology forward, something that was much needed due to relatively slow embracing of technology in this sphere.
