A New VR Platform Will Allow You To Experience The Wildlife of Animals In The Savannas
Why go on safari when you can feed an African lion live via VR?
Not all of us can go on a safari, but this just-released immersive virtual reality experience has now launched on PlayStation VR.
Virry VR platform (now nominated for a Webby Award) allows people to virtually engage with real African animals up close and in their natural habitat, learn interesting facts, answer questions and interact with the animals through the virtual experience.
The new virtual reality experience offers footage of various animals up close, with the intention of both providing a thrill and teaching users about the endangered wildlife around Africa.
Virry VR includes 35 minutes of 4K 360 degree footage that cover six different species: zebras, green monkeys, elephants, rhinos, hyenas, and lions.
Each of the animals' footage includes a small degree of narrative control — things like choosing whether to feed animals or other ways to engage with them.
The VR footage was taken at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya. Users can opt to purchase the 35 minutes of footage, and they can also subscribe to a live camera feed from the conservancy for a small monthly fee.
