Virtual Reality and Interactive 360º storytelling have many great applications. However, its most powerful application is when it is used to immerse viewers into the world of others – transporting them to foreign places to walk in other people’s shoes, to experience their lives and hopefully to discover a different perspective.
In 2020, VRTY is proud to partner with the team from Think Digital and Farm VR, an immersive technology studio, working with virtual reality (VR) in agriculture, as well as augmented reality (AR). They are based in Adelaide, Australia.
Think Digital create immersive and interactive content such as virtual tours, 360° videos, virtual reality simulators and multiplayer environments for the agriculture, food and fibre industries to inspire careers in this sector and help people learn where their food comes from. Over the years we have created over 100 360° video experiences and we love to create virtual tours of the farms we visit.
Their free app, FarmVR, is available on the web, and the iOS and Google Play Stores. It contains 100+ 360° videos, spanning categories such as beef, sheep, pork, aquaculture, grains & plants – so there’s something for everyone!
FarmVR aims to provide teachers with free immersive educational resources to use in the classroom, and we attend schools, events and agricultural shows to share the love of virtual and augmented reality.
Think Digital proudly share their Egg Farm VR experience where they created the experience using the VRTY platform. The Egg Farm virtual tour showcases a local egg farm and the process of how eggs arrive onto your dinner table. Check out the whole process in VR on your mobile phone with a mobile headset or in 360° on your desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone.
