One of the darkest hours of modern humanity, the atomic bomb being dropped on Hiroshima is a day that lives in infamy even in our times. And to communicate the horror and devastation of the A-bomb, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum will utilize the current available technology of 3-D graphics and visuals, hoping that the future generations will have an idea of what atomic weapons can do.
There will be two versions of the 3-D presentation, one only 30 seconds long, while the other a full minute. The video will be viewable most likely with 3-D glasses, and will include moments in the atomic explosion – from the impact, the mushroom cloud, and the homes being totally destroyed by the ensuing shockwave and flames. The Hiroshima city government is endorsing this presentation, as they said it will communicate to the younger generation the historical and scientific facts about the atomic bomb attack in a format that is easily received and understood. Most high school and college students will take to the 3-D video naturally. In fact, some of the elderly might have trouble with the seeming reality of the presentation, which is the main reason why there is a shorter version of the video.
The new 3-D video will also be supplemented by additional pictures and items from that time, the tail end of the Second World War. The museum will be displaying more visuals, including mementos and other personal items related to the bombing, such as clothing, personal articles, and the like. There will even be a new section on foreigners who were in Japan at the time and also lost in the bombing.
