VR video experiences are getting increasingly easy to make and now require little or no kit for people watching.
While you could explore Leo’s winning Oscar’s moment in luxurious 360° views, you should really watch this awesome film from PBS’ FRONTLINE investigative team working with Brown University’s Institute for Media Innovation.
“On the Brink of Famine” is a 10-minute full 360° documentary that lets you get deeper into the lives of people affected by the two-year conflict in South Sudan.
You just grab the video with your mouse or finger to explore the whole landscape in each shot, immersing you in a war that is displacing civilians and ultimately seeing many people starve.
As many as 50,000 people have died, despite the warring sides agreeing a peace deal.
You can see Ars Technica’s full ‘making of’ documentary here too.
