Within: A Google Cardboard Review

within-vr

Within is a virtual reality application that was founded in 2014. It has a variety of VR videos that can be viewed with a VR headset like Google Cardboard. Some of the videos it features include music videos, documentaries, and shorts. One Republic has a really cool music video that shifts perspectives from one room to another room. Another video, called displaced, shows the struggles that 3 kids go through in Syria. It almost feels like you are there, especially if you are using headphones. It is really cool how all the videos have a 360 perspective. If you don’t have VR you can check them out here. There were some very strange videos as well. One video had a train coming right at you, and then shifted to a baby inside the womb. Another video called Invasion had a little bunny rabbit saving planet Earth. Overall, the VR experience was very fluid; the only thing that was lacking was the quality of the videos. If you are dying to swim with dolphins then I definitely recommend this application.
