Dreaming of a VR Christmas: Launching an immersive #VRcalendar

In cooperation with DW InnovationEuronews, and numerous members of the international VR community, most notably VR/AR expo organizers DIGILITY, we launch the first VR/360 advent calendar today.

The experimental Xmas experience will eventually feature 24 immersive stories/scenes and can be viewed on a wide range of devices. You can start your experience today with the first window.

On December 1st, we start with an intro scene (a forest, classic imagery) and the first window. On December 2nd, we’ll add another one. And so on. Come Xmas, we’ll have a collection of 24 special VR moments curated in an easy-to-share container.

The container is a Fader story that will run on:

  • the Oculus Rift (use Firefox with WebVR)
  • most up-to-date Android phones (use your Chrome browser, look through the magic window or put the phone into a cardboard-compatible device to go fully immersive)
  • most up-to-date iPhones (use Safari/magic window)
  • most up-to-date desktop computers (use Chrome/WebVR; navigate with our your trackpad or mouse)

You can easily share the advent calendar Fader story via Facebook, Twitter or email:
It’s a unique link that won’t change (but will have updated content every day).

We hope you’ll enjoy our immersive advent experiment — and let others know about it. (#VRcalendar).

Thank you to DW Innovation for coming up with the idea of the VR calendar and thank you to DIGILITY for contributing to the project by offering support and social love.
