A half-million pictures of two shipwrecks will blend into lifelike VR/AR exhibits thanks to accelerated computing.

Museumgoers will be able to explore two sunken WWII ships as if they were scuba divers on the ocean floor, thanks to work at Curtin University in Perth, Australia.

Exhibits in development, for display in Australia and potentially further afield, will use exquisitely detailed 3D models the researchers are creating to tell the story of one of the nation's greatest naval battles.

On Nov. 19, 1941, Australia's HMAS Sydney (II) and Germany's HSK Kormoran lobbed hundreds of shells in a duel that lasted less than an hour. More than 700 died, including every sailor on the Sydney.
