The New York Times has teamed up with Google to release a virtual reality app that features VR news pieces. This is an exciting new development in 21st century journalism.
From the pages of The Guardian:
"Earlier this month a new tool in the evolution of digital journalism arrived in the homes of 1 million New York Times subscribers in the form of a cardboard box. The unassuming package contained a pre-assembled Google Cardboard set, a cheap and cheerful virtual reality viewer that, when combined with a smartphone and the NYT VR app, allowed readers to watch The Displaced, an 11-minute film about refugee children, in immersive, 360-degree video."
