Nice to meet you in XR! – Antigone
The characters you can choose to live the XR experience in the Ancient Greece
We would like to introduce you to the characters that animate the XR experience developed by BRIDGES at the Foundation of the Hellenic World. These are Avatars and Non-Player Characters (NPCs).
While avatars are virtual characters who lend their likenesses to visitors so that they can interact with each other and with objects in extended reality, NPCs are virtual characters who are not being played by the visitors, but are useful to enrich the environment and to make it more realistic.
After visitors put on their equipment, they can choose the avatar with which they experience the XR scenario.
Each avatar has his/her own personality and characteristics, which determine the role of visitors and the typology of interactions in the XR.
The first avatar, Appolonios, is available here.
Imagine teaching history using avatars and NPCs. We would have the most passionate students of history ever!
Antigone (avatar), descendent of an aristocratic family
I’m approximately 40 years old. I wear a sleeveless chiton , in a dark purple color, with a decorative pattern at the edge.
I’m the daughter of an aristocratic family, and I got married to Appoloniοs when I was 18 years old.
I’m calm and diplomatic. I’m obedient and a loyal wife, nevertheless I have strong opinions that I expresse, especially when I want to defend my only son, Linοs.
