Virtual Reality can be used for many educative purposes, but most of us would rather use it to pry into inaccessible places. Aware of users’ curiosity, Google invites us to White House Christmas preparations with VR tour.
Google has found a new way to remind users that virtual reality is coming their way: they are promoting a 360 degree tour of the White House. The tech giant has purposefully selected this time of the year because of the wonderful Christmas decorations that viewers will have access to.
The video lasts for almost six minutes – a very short interval considering that there are many rooms left to see in the White House. Even so, Google thinks they have captured the most attractive areas of the house and the most beautiful Christmas decorations.
Viewers have many examples to inspire themselves from. There are many Christmas trees decorated around the house and some of them feature the colors of the national flag, for those, who were looking for new Christmas decorating ideas.
The short movie clip can be viewed with the naked eye, but the images will not be very clear. Google recommends users to get Google Cardboard for a complete virtual reality experience.
The new 360 virtual reality tour is available for educative purposes, as well. Teachers, who have Google Cardboard can access the expedition and help their students learn the interior of the White House.
Google Expeditions have been created to make school projects more appealing with the help of VR. There are many U.S. locations that pupils can visit using their virtual reality headsets, including the Grand Canyon. The White House is a new location that will be added to Google Expedition, the company has informed.
Google Expedition was first introduced in September 2015. Interested teachers can register their schools and classes on Google’s official website.
