NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- YouVisit, a leading virtual reality technology provider, has just launched an app for Google's new, high quality, mobile virtual reality platform, Daydream. Creating and curating real-world interactive virtual reality experiences for over six years, YouVisit's new app will empower consumers to explore the undiscovered area between real-world 360 video and VR gaming on Daydream-ready devices.
At initial launch, YouVisit will offer 27 interactive VR experiences that contain a combined 84 pieces of additional embedded interactive content. Offerings will range from documentary-style experiences that highlight interesting stories in everyday life, to interactive travel content that lets the user lead the exploration, to all-access looks at events such as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia and the TomorrowWorld EDM Festival. YouVisit hopes to not only entertain consumers, but also allow them to leverage VR as a tool for relaxation, experiential learning and sharing their own perspective of the world. "We have set out to create content that not only excites consumers, but enables them to experience, learn and understand more about the world around them," said Abi Mandelbaum, CEO of YouVisit. "As we continue to make more experiences available, we seek to offer more opportunities for people to come away with not only enjoyment, but also with a new perspective." As part of the launch on Daydream, YouVisit's experiences will also feature a new interactive, spherical navigation system that adds a sense of scale and play, giving the viewer direct control over how they explore an experience using the Daydream controller. Viewers will identify these experiences as spherical "worlds" and be able to engage with each world for a preview of the content, without having to completely commit to stepping into it.
