Hold the World

Can you hold the world? Can you hold the past, present, and the future?

If Ben Stiller witnessed how the exhibits in the American Museum of Natural History come to life at night in the movie, Night at the Museum (2006), now you can immerse yourself in the environments where fossils and other precious specimens at London Natural History Museum come to life!

The museum now offers a fantastic VR experience for the audience commissioned by SKY VR. It is a series named “Hold the World” hosted by the one of the most popular natural historians, Sir David Attenborough.

Hold the World will be the first-ever VR experience to combine video game technology with documentary-style storytelling. Through this, you will get to see how extinct species come to life, how the present species evolved, and what the future holds to these living species.

The Unfolding of Grenfell Fire

According to UK’s NHS, there are still several residents that need psychological help. Yet, many more are not showing up. How can health workers look after residents who are still suffering trauma 2 years has passed since the incident?

Can Virtual Reality help victims let go of their painful experience?

And this is the primary goal why UK’s NHS has just released a “virtual reality film featuring former England striker Les Ferdinand to encourage people to open up about their mental health“.

Let’s travel the world using VR

Will you travel around the world in 80 days or travel the world using VR?

In a 19th century setting, from Jules Verne’s iconic novel, Phileas Fogg had to prove the Royal Academy of Science that he can circumnavigate the world in 80 days.

In a current 21st century, you can travel the world, 1300 destinations in 193 countries in one round-the -world-ticket!

But what about travelling the world without really moving away from where you are? If that’s the travel you like, then grab your VR headset and watch here!
