The Timelooper app allows users to experience key moments in London history with just a smartphone and a cardboard headset.For example, when Timelooper co-founder Andrew Feinberg visits the Tower of London, a historic castle on the banks of London's Thames River, he doesn't queue up with hordes of tourists to catch a glimpse of the royal family's crown jewels. Instead, he uses Timelooper's time travel tourism app to experience the tower over 750 years ago, in 1255 .Not far away at St. Paul's Cathedral, Timelooper users travel back to the Great Fire of London 350 years ago, in 1666 .In 2014, Yigiter's wife brought home a Google cardboard VR headset, and he began thinking about an immersive virtual reality tourism experience.Timelooper's travel app is also used by those working in London's booming tourism industry.The Thames River's 120-year-old Tower Bridge is set to launch its own Timelooper experience in April, taking visitors back to 1666, before the bridge was even built.
