A Virtual Reality tour of the White House? You better believe it

Google Offers A VR Tour of the White House at Christmas Time.

“Tour the White House in virtual reality.” That sounds unbelievably cool, but maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that it’s really not that exciting. Overall, it cost the tech titan $15,000 to set up the experience, though that also allows content creators to access Google’s assembler software, which is capable of cobbling different video feeds to form one 360-degree video. According to Google, this won’t be the first and only time it will be releasing such content to users. “We’ll continue to release new videos that highlight the potential of Jump,” said a Google spokesman in an email to VentureBeat. “However, we are looking to get the tech in the hands of more creators.” If you don’t have a Google Cardboard viewer or an Android phone, you can use your iPhone or iPad to pan around while watching the video on YouTube. Teachers can also make use of the Google Expedition version, allowing students to get a VR guided tour and teachers to stop for talking points as they facilitate the tour.
