If you have been to Los Angeles and have not visitedfamous Petersen Automotive Museum then made a big mistake. Anyone who is not indifferent to cars must go at least once in his life to this temple of automotive culture, located at: 6060 Wilshire Boulevard on Fairfax Avenue And there really is something to see, especially now, and especially to fans of science fiction films. Last week (May 4), an exhibition entitled “Hollywood Dream Machines: Science Fiction and Fantasy Vehicles” opened at the museum, displaying over 50 different vehicles from your favorite movies.
You must have seen them - this is "Star Wars""Blade Runner", "Jurassic Park", "Mad Max: Fury Road" and many others. Every movie fan recognizes the iconic DeLorean car from the movie “Back to the Future”, a futuristic motorcycle from the movie “Tron: Heritage” or an armored personnel carrier from the movie “Prometheus”.
As noted in a conversation with the portal Gizmododirector of the Petersen Automobile Museum, Terry Karges, this exhibition was the largest in the 25-year history of the building. Visitors are offered not only to look at full-sized (and diminished) replicas, as well as original models of cult vehicles, but also to take the opportunity using mixed reality technologies (using Microsoft Hololens glasses) to take part in a virtual tour, appreciating the aesthetics of the interiors of all fantastic titles, ranging from DeLorean from the Back to the Future movie trilogy and ending with the brutal Warthog jeep from the Halo gaming universe.
