Technology of Virtual Reality
In addition, young people will be able to experiment, inside Cristonaur@s Park, with virtual reality devices; they will live an experience of reflection following the Lectio Divina method, making use of Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Karaoke, Kinect and touch screens, 3D and 4D.
The Angel Gabriel will be their guide during this process of reflection and, like the Virgin Mary, they are constantly communicating with each youth, helping them understand the Lord’s message and, what more important, how to internalize it in their life and put it into practice.
