The Ørsted 360° VR Space Safari by Khora VR is one of the best 360 video pieces I’ve seen.
I highly recommend checking it out in YouTubeVR’s app, or you can watch it on your phone in a portal window view.
The piece attempts to invoke the “Overview Effect,” which was first coined by astronauts who gained a more holistic and global citizen perspective after witnessing the Earth from the perspective of space. The Ørsted 360° VR Space Safari is the most successful attempt of this I’ve seen so far as it features a stunning scale shift that’s reminiscent of the famous Powers of Ten film from 1977.
I talk with Khora VR CTO & Cofounder Peter Fisher at the Impact Reality Summit about the production journey for this piece, their collaboration with sustainable energy producer Ørsted, and some of the unique approaches that Khora VR has been taking to evangelize VR in Copenhagen, Denmark.
