Have you ever wanted to swim with sharks (or Mythbusters), but don’t want to get wet or put your life in mortal danger? Discovery has the solution for you: virtual reality! The cable channel recently launched Discovery VR a site and app that offers users the ability to watch high definition, multi-angle videos on their computers, phones, headsets (like Samsung Gear VR or Google Cardboard), and eventually the Oculus. Apps are currently available on the iTunes and Google Play stores.Current offerings include Mythbusters: Sharks Everywhere, Shark Shipwreck, and Underwater Shark Experiment, as well as VR versions of Survivorman and Gold Rush that were all shot with this format in mind. To get an idea how they film some of these videos, check out this photo posted on Twitter by Discovery’s VP, Digital – Discovery Agency – Discovery VR Cory Key taken while filming the Freeboarding San Francisco video:From our #discoveryVR Freeboarding Lombard street #VR shoot. http://t.co/hgEJ09AHr0 pic.twitter.com/01LlSmt3zc— Cory Key (@pleekabar) August 27, 2015Other videos include Surf Less: On The Board With A Big Wave Pro, Pacific Sunset: Half Moon Bay, and Redwoods: A Walk Among Giants: Muir Island.When looking at them on the site, the edges curve away to recreate the depth-creating format. You can also use the mouse to revolve the 360-degree view to get a look at everything that was shot. You can also play with the POV thanks to the Fish Eye and Little Planet projection modes. The former brings back memories of 90s rap videos while the latter shows a view from a perched camera that makes everything look like a globe. It’s hard to explain, but looks like this:Discovery already has hundreds of high-def cameras all over the world filming all these shows, so it just makes sense for them to capture the world in a way that they can then present it to virtual reality users.
