What You'll Get
Visit: Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, Edinburgh, Scotland
World of Illusions:
As you weave your way through our World of Illusions, remember one important rule: nothing here is what it seems.
Venture into five floors full of things you’ve probably never seen before. A swirling light vortex that can sweep you off your feet. A maze made of mirrors. A chance to swap noses with a friend. It’s all here.
Camera Obscura show:
A dark room. A large table. A beam of light. When you walk into our special rooftop chamber, things seem pretty straightforward. But wait. An image of Edinburgh appears on the table. The narrow closes of the Old Town. The sophisticated crescents of the New Town. What happens next is like nothing you’ve seen before.
There are no projectors here – just clever Victorians with technology that brought moving pictures to the people of Edinburgh, long before cinema was invented. Watch as your guide leads you on a fascinating adventure through (and over) this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The people you can see are real – and are walking down Edinburgh’s streets at this very moment. Scoop them up. Squash them. Build bridges for them to drive over – all without leaving the room. This is the original virtual reality, Victorian style.
