Get a peek at the White House’s holiday decorations with this 360-degree VR tour.

You might not be able to make it to Washington, DC to view the White House’s holiday displays, but this 360-degree VR tour might be the next best thing. “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. The I Am Cardboard (IAC) v2 kit is one of the first in local shelves, and proudly stands apart in the global market for being the most mobile and affordable branded VR device. Journalists and tech enthusiasts at the event delighted in an array of hands-on demos that immersed them in outer space, concerts, underwater, and the ultimate home theater, to name a few.

Words aren’t enough to describe the 360-degree, multi-sensory VR experience— but thanks to the IAC V2, the possibilities are already in your pocket. Cardboard was the runaway star of the 2014 Google I/O developer conference amidst rumours of a $200 Samsung-Oculus headset— Cardboard unlocked VR for next to nothing. Still, if holiday decorations are your thing, put on a comfy robe, pour yourself some egg nog, curl up your your smartphone or laptop, and enjoy this glimpse inside “the People’s House.” Google wants this sort of content to be useful for education, so it made a Google Expedition for schools participating in its Expeditions Pioneer Program. “We’ll continue to release new videos that highlight the potential of Jump,” a spokesman told VentureBeat in an email. “However, we are looking to get the tech in the hands of more creators.”
