NY Times launching series of short investigative VR films
In a Tuesday announcement, the New York Times said that it is launching a series of short investigative virtual reality (VR) films.
The slate of VR films which the Times plans to launch will be viewable on some of the new VR headsets - including the Google Cardboard and the Samsung VR - which use mobile handsets as viewers.
The first investigative VR film to be launched by the Times will be titled 'The Displaced.' The email codes for the film - which follows refugee children from the Sudan, Ukraine, and Syria - will be sent out to some home delivery subscribers of the Times, beginning November 7.
The email codes will enable Times Insider subscribers -- as well as a few Times Digital subscribers -- to obtain a 'free' assemble-it-yourself Google Cardboard VR headset for watching the film. To access the film, the mentioned lot of Times subscribers will have to download the NYT VR app - which is not yet available on the Google Play Store or App Store - and apparently sign in with a Times account.
The Times plans to publish a total of three short VR films this year; and will release more films in 2016.
