Why Nature Lovers and Virtual Reality Headsets Are The Perfect Match
By: James McDonald
SAN DIEGO, CALIF. The pitch was simple: try our new virtual reality headset--a piece of cake.
“How I went all around the world in one day”
Well that sounded cool--why not?
So the team over at Astoria VR sent me their Virtual Reality Headset along with a nifty bluetooth controller for review. I snapped my iPhone into it, made a couple of simple adjustments and opened one of the videos they gave me to play. The video - a virtual reality tour of The Grand Canyon.
I put the headset on and adjusted my view so that there were no edges around them. Suddenly, I was amazed. I was gazing up at the beautiful Havasu Falls. Turning my head to the right there was a stunning first person view of the Glass Bridge Skywalk. It appeared so real my fear of heights kicked in at the thought of going near it. You can hear the roar of the rapids as a rush of excitement fills you. The setting sun casts its warm glow through the towering canyon walls. Is this Virtual reality? I wondered. I was shocked at the level of details immersing me in nature.
Astoria VR Provides The Large Catalogue Of Nature Tours To Choose From
The headset made me realize that the future is here. I was sitting in my office cubicle yet experiencing something so real. I selected another highly recommended nature tour from Astoria VR’s catalogue of apps: Whitehouse Yosemite Virtual Reality Nature Tour. As the tour began-- to my shocking surprise, President Barack Obama was the host!
“Join President Obama on a 360-degree tour of Yosemite
National Park, an iconic example of "America's best idea.”
- With The Astoria VR.
As part of the National Parks 100th birthday, you can experience the President’s trip to Yosemite like never before through virtual reality. “Going to a place like Yosemite changes you; it stays with you for the rest of your life ... And I want all of our kids, and all of their kids, to have this chance too.” said President Obama. The vivid video of the virtual reality tour took my breath away as I listened and journeyed on my way with the President through Yosemite National Park.
“See the wonders of the world with this headset and your cell phone”
Open Your Eyes And See The Wonders Of The World
This headset not only does the job but gave me a perspective that I've always wanted. I didn't find it hard to use at all - anybody with a cell phone can change their reality in just a couple of minutes. Pretty innovative, I must say. This made life a lot more interesting for an older fella like me--and the technology is very innovative. Best part is you aren't just limited to nature with this virtual reality headset. You can sit courtside at a basketball game, football game, concert or even a Cirque Du Soleil show! Also, there are thousands of YouTube videos that support this headset now giving endless possibilities. Astoria VR sells their Virtual Reality Headset for just under $60 which I found to be a pretty good deal considering most retailers sell their headsets no cheaper than $100. The lenses in the Astoria VR headset are much sharper and higher quality than most others and best of all--it supports 4k!
