New Update: Join The Seeker Expedition in EVEREST VR

EVEREST VR: The Seeker Expedition is now available as a free update for owners of our VR Experience on Vive and Rift. The production is a creative and editorial collaboration with the team at Seeker that brings the stories and the science of Mount Everest to life in an immersive narrative format only possible in virtual reality.

Merging interactive documentary with the immersion of virtual reality, EVEREST VR: The Seeker Expedition lets users explore a fully navigable, real-time 3D reconstruction of Mount Everest and discover fascinating accounts of man´s encounters with the world’s most iconic mountain.

In a series of audio guides, contextual infographic sequences and ground-breaking 360 video filmed on Everest, the experience conveys multiple perspectives of the mountain. They range from the geology of the Himalayas to the impact of climate change on Everest; from the effects of high altitude climbing on the human body to the summit experiences of mountaineer Conrad Anker, expedition captain Lakpa Rita Sherpa, and geologist and author Mike Searle. Norbu Tenzing, Vice President of the American Himalayan Foundation and son of Tenzing Norgay provides a unique account of Sherpa culture and of his father´s historic first ascent with Edmund Hillary in 1953.

The Seeker Expedition also incorporates unique 360 video footage filmed by the VR Explorers, documenting their successful 2016 summit attempt. It provides an unparalleled perspective on the real world conditions and environment facing Everest climbers.

You can find more information on our collaboration here . I hope you enjoy this new expansion to EVEREST VR!

“Climbing Everest in Virtual Reality Was More Powerful Than Any Video Game”
VICE

“If at this point you still think VR is a gimmick, or a fad, it’s either because you haven’t tried it at all, or you haven’t tried the right experience. Screenshots can’t do this justice. Video can’t do this justice. My words, no matter how descriptive and colorful and emotional I make them, can’t do this justice.”
Forbes

“Indeed, by re-creating a mountain expedition so vividly and vertiginously, “Everest” suggests, perhaps more than any piece of content about a real-life place made to date, that VR can come tantalizingly close to replicating the real thing; this is as authentic as it gets without strapping on a backpack and hopping on an Asia-bound plane.”
