With virtual reality (VR) head-mounted displays (HMD) being a perfect platform for companies to showcase immersive, interactive, 360 degree video, early adopters of VR HMD’s have a good choice of video content to use on their devices. The Wild Within by developers Dare / Immersive Media is one such project that allows viewers to experience the pristine coastal wilderness of British Columbia, Canada.
Made on behalf of Destination B.C, the tourist board for British Columbia, The Wild Within transports you through the Broughton Archipelago of the Great Bear Rainforest, located between the mainland and Northern Vancouver Island. Giving two distinct paths to explore, one heads up into the alpine to discover the glacial waterfalls, while the other explores the beautiful coastline of Canada.
Now available via Oculus Home on Gear VR for free, The Wild Within produces an iconic representation of British Columbia, and VRFocus will continue follow the Gear VR and all the latest updates on the technology.
