History told through modern technology

Historia Futurae is an NGO where modern technologies such as augmented (AR) or virtual reality (VR) intersect with historical topics. Historia Futurae is built on the principles of openness, transparency, collaboration, and clarity in transmission of history to the widest possible audience. Engagingly, without prejudice and embellishment.

Interdisciplinary cooperation between historians and developers

Historia Futurae was founded in July 2019 by Jan Blazek and his marketing, development and history colleagues. We want to take advantage of the know-how we have acquired through the commercial projects of our creative consultancy Little Greta and AR and VR agency VRCOT, to deliver meaningful non-profit projects.

LIDICE 2020
What did the historic village of Lidice look like before the Nazis destroyed it?

On June 10th 1942, Lidice, a small village in the Central Bohemia, Czech Republic, was razed to the ground. A total of 173 men were shot dead, while women and most of the children were transported to concentration camps. This was in retaliation for the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich on May 27th, a high-ranking Nazi official, and a main architect of the Holocaust.

But what did the village actually look like before the Nazis destroyed it? We decided to rebuild Lidice, using modern technologies such as virtual or augmented reality. Helping the public look back before that sad evening of June 1942, when the village's fate was sealed.

We're working on the Lidice reconstruction non-profit project in VR and AR with Lidice Memorial and VRCOT.

Since July 2019, fundraising activities have commenced. If you are interested in supporting the project, please contact us.
