Immersive Virtual Reality Experiences

February 25, 2017 Learning Tools

Developed by The New York Times, the NYT VR app for iOS and Android puts users at the center of stories in an immersive virtual reality (VR) experience. From experiencing life through the eyes of a refugee, to climbing the spire of the World Trade Center with a professional mountaineer, or setting foot on the alien world of Pluto, the app brings users to places they couldn’t normally go. For the most immersive NYT VR experience, users can watch the VR films with Google Cardboard. However, they can also view the VR stories on their smartphones without Google Cardboard. The Times posts new virtual reality films every month or so. Cost: Free
