*President Barack Obama has jumped into the world of virtual reality to promote the beauty of America’s National Parks.
POTUS appears in “Through The Ages,” an immersive video look at Yosemite National Park shown via Facebook-owned virtual reality headset maker Oculus.
Shot in about a week, the 11-minute video features Obama narrating his environmental concerns including climate change and the preservation of natural landmarks for future generations.
First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, also appear in the film, which was shot during a Father’s Day trip to Yosemite to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.
The video was produced by Felix & Paul Studios in cooperation with the White House, Oculus and National Geographic.
“Through The Ages” is available on Samsung’s Gear VR as well as through Facebook’s 360-degree video viewing experience. It is scheduled to arrive on the Oculus Rift headset later.
