3D iPad app brings youngsters closer to Christianity
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Jerusalem.com Holy Sepulchre 3D - a new concept in Christian education
JERUSALEM, ISRAEL, (August 28, 2012) - In face growing claims that Catholic education has become outdated and has failed to adopt more appealing methods to attract the youth to Christianity, many in the Catholic church are calling for innovative and modern solutions youngsters can relate to. Catholic education begins at an early age so it is vital to keep up with the times and adapt Catholic education to what they know and love.
Jerusalem.com has recently launched its new iPad app, an accurately scaled 3D virtual tour of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem - Where many millions believe Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected. With advanced graphics and emphasis on ambiance and music, it is engaging and moving - It’s like actually being there, only better!
"By utilizing and configuring 3D gaming technology, we've produced an unparalleled never before seen endeavor - the possibility to feel, freely walk around and learn about Jerusalem and its holy Christian sites, from anywhere in the world" says Igal Lichtman, a long time entrepreneur with many successful investments (see ‘InternetDominion.com’ for details).
The 3D virtual tour uses the extremely popular 3D gaming environment to create an absorbing way for the younger generation to learn about the story of the last days of Jesus in Jerusalem. It is a true to life 3D world which conveys the atmosphere of the site, without the noise and confusion of the crowds.
Fully narrated with HD video, HD photographs, explanations and inform
tion on its history and story that lies behind the Holy Sepulchre Church – Jesus’ destiny and sacrifice in the Holy city. The 3D tour is suitable and enjoyable for all ages and everyone can find the Jerusalem closest to their hearts.
Jerusalem.com is the initiative of a team of young artists, developers and researchers who live and understand this modern world of global technology. Jerusalem.com was founded in 2012 by Igal and Michal Lichtman, who appointed Segev Shilton as CEO. With the objective of bringing Jerusalem to everyone in the world, transcending geographical, political and religious boundaries, Jerusalem.com is dedicated to use this $1,500,000 USD investment to fuse technology and faith and bring something new, unique and positive to the world.
