United Nations Introduces a New Virtual Reality App for Global Stories

What is UN trying now?

United Nation’s Creative Director, Gabo Arora, is trying everything to reach out to this world and make a change. He has contributed a lot of new ideas like the film-festival quality content and now virtual reality app too. The app is known as UNVR (United Nations Virtual Reality) app. It will include VR movies created by film makers from countries like Jordan, Liberia, Nepal, India and Gaza. UNVR app was launched this month but some of the content was already introduced in the year 2015 itself. Arora aims to redefine the way stories are told.

What is idea behind this project?

Virtual Reality is changing the way stories are being told. Mr. Arora feels it is a moral responsibility to use VR as a medium for this because then people would get an up, close and personal experience with those locations and stories. This will have a better, deeper effect in educating people about the world thus making our society a better one. The makers also use real-life people for movies instead of professional actors thus making it all more realistic. He aims to make regular people feel like real heroes. People can now carry VR in their pocket and with the help of this new app one can now get easy access to such content and thus change the world.

How can one use UNVR app?

Gabo ultimately believes that UN should not be about donor or a specific program but only about the people. If you want to download the UNVR app, it is available for Oculus, iOS and Google Play for free and one can also watch the movies in 360 degree in 2D or 3D with the help of VR gear.
