There was a recently posted video on YouTube on the White House. This allowed viewers to tour the White House, and even say hi to President Obama, in virtual reality. However, even though this sounds really cool, the VR tour of this building was a little disappointing.
VR COMES TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND OBAMA
This VR video of the White House is available to watch on YouTube. It is a little over five minutes in length and features various still images of monuments in the building. It takes you on a virtual reality tour. There is a voice-over guide during the video as well. You could tell this was taking recently because most of the rooms had various Christmas decorations. You could even say hi to virtual reality Obama. However, although this video gives viewers a peek at the White House, this video was admittedly a little disappointing.
THE NEW VR VIDEO OF THE WHITE HOUSE IS A LITTLE DISSAPOINTING
OK lets’ be honest, this video does not show very much. It honestly did not even feel like you were looking at a VR tour of the White House. It looked like a very rich man’s home, but there was nothing in the video that was worthwhile. Not only the actual tour itself but the images themselves did not look as good as they could have. The video supports 4K resolution, but that does not really matter because the images themselves do not look that amazing.
VR WILL CONTINUE TO GET BETTER
The potential of virtual reality is enormous and as companies, like Google, continue to work with it, it will continue to get better. The tools to make VR will continue to get better, and when that happens it can be expected that videos like this will continue to improve.
VR MAY HAVE BEEN DISSAPOINTING, BUT IT IS BETTER THAN NOTHING
Even though this video was a little disappointing, it is better than nothing. The White House is a building that many will never get the chance to experience. A virtual reality tour is the best chance everyone has to actually see the White House. So, even though this video was a little disappointing, at least, we got to see some of the building. In the future, we may see an even better video as VR continues to adapt. Then, we can see an even better version of Obama, at least until he leaves.
