Sony has come with an update by launching its Virry VR application for PSVR users. The application provides users views from African wildlife in 360 video format. Sony announced that the application has educational purposes for the young generation, so they can learn much useful information about the wild world.
Virry VR allows users to discover animals and their lives which will lead them to gain more information and understanding about nature and about the world they live in reported Svetlana Dragayeva who is the Chief Executive Officer of Virry.
While shooting the animals in Kenyan Savannah they used special rigs that allowed filmmakers to capture animals at a closer distance. Virry app is interactive as viewers may add some meats in a video and let animals eat them using their joystick.
The 360 video is shot in Lewa Downs where observers may meet various animals and enjoy African plains as well. Virry includes live stream functionality to enjoy Lewa Conservancy which is specially created to help people relax. They will continuously update their videos including different animals to get up close to them.
The application is paid though for PSVR users costing £7.99 in the United Kingdom. United State users do not have access to Virry yet. Virry VR is already available in Playstation Store to download. There are many educational videos for free out there and it is interesting how Virry will execute.
