Find yourself in a state of free-fall, lost in space,
tumbling out of control in the orbit of our home planet, Earth.
I have always wondered what would it feel like to find myself lost in space.
From 2001: Space Odyssey to Gravity to upcoming Adrift, science-fiction media presented this scenario (often in first-person perspective) yet I could never feel like I truly experienced it. Now, with help of Virtual Reality, I am finally able to attempt and recreate the sensation – tumbling out of control in orbit of our home planet, Earth.
Watched in stereoscopic 360° video, Freefall is capable of fooling your senses, letting you experience this unique scenario for yourself.
Freefall is best experienced using high fidelity HMD (Head-Mounted Display) such as HTC Vive, Oculus Rift or GearVR. Google Cardboard offers a great entry-level budget option for
anyone with a smartphone anyone.
