We love to see Virtual Reality & 360° Video being used for good causes.
On a recent trip to South Africa, Bill Gates used 360° Video to tell his story.
Here is an extract of what he had to say about Virtual Reality.
“During my trip to South Africa in July, I tried something new that I hope will allow people to experience what I have. I had highlights of my visit recorded in virtual reality. It’s still an emerging technology but what excites me about it is that it allows viewers to immerse themselves in another world. You can look up and down. Turn right or left. Listen to sounds all around you. I used to think there was no substitute to being there and seeing things for yourself. But virtual reality is a close second. It fulfills my dream of allowing people to see what I’m seeing and, perhaps, feel what I’m feeling, too.”

We are always excited meet South Africans who want to use this medium to tell immersive & moving stories.
