One of the news perks of Virtual Reality development
For the first time, the Olympic Games will be available to watch on virtual reality (VR).
NBC Olympics announced today that it will provide VR coverage of the Rio 2016 Olympics to authenticated users of compatible Samsung Galaxy smartphones. Viewers will be immersed in the games’ environment and experience it with a 360-degree view.
“Fans of the Olympics will now get to experience the world’s best athletes as they compete in some of the most popular events of Rio 2016 in a whole new way: virtual reality,” Marc Mathieu, Chief Marketing Officer at Samsung Electronics America, said in a statement.
