Greenpeace launches Virtual Explorer app containing specially commissioned Alchemy VR content
Earlier this week Greenpeace UK launched their first VR app, Virtual Explorer, which through a range of 360-degree immersive films, gives supporters the chance to experience amazing places like the Amazon and Arctic first-hand, and take action to defend them.
One of the films, Munduruku: The Fight to Defend the Heart of the Amazon, was shot in the heart of the Amazon rainforest by Alchemy VR and highlights the world of the Munduruku Indigenous People which is currently under threat from planned government construction initiatives. Alchemy VR and Greenpeace spent two weeks living with the Munduruku people, capturing the very essence of tribe life and creating a truly empathic virtual reality experience.
It was such an honor working with such an esteemed organisation to bring attention to such a worthy cause. There is much more to announce on this project so watch this space!
You can download the app here and it is compatible with a number of VR headsets but if you don’t have one you can make a small donation to Greenpeace and they will get one out to you.
