Water in the World in VR/360º
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.
