After receiving rave reviews and giving two of BBC's documentaries a grand opening at the Natural History Museum, London, the Samsung Gear Virtual Reality (VR) technology is being introduced for the very first time in the land down under by the Australian Museum.
Presented by master narrator and eminent broadcaster, Sir David Attenborough, First Life VR and Great Barrier Reef Dive VR are two documentary series covering prehistoric creatures and reef life on Earth respectively. As in TV Mini-series like Life and Planet Earth, these programmes will surely take the audience on exciting joy-rides. First Life (a visual effects creation) is a journey down the annals of history to the very beginning of organismic life on Earth, while Great Barrier Reef Dive is a 360 degree video shoot of the world's largest coral reef and one of the most diverse ecosystems.
The legendary naturalist's first rendezvous with the Great Barrier Reef was 60 years ago. Now, after journeying round the globe and experimenting with Black & White, Colour, HD and 3D, Sir Attenborough is back with rare footages of the endangered underwater wilderness in VR.

If the media reviews are to be believed, these new productions are unparalleled in capturing the beauty of the natural world. And the VR experience is going to propel them to a whole new dimension. I am excited. Are you?
