Description: An astronaut flies through outer space inside a tiny space capsule. Alas, then little problems inside the vehicle start to snowball, ending in a dramatic crash. The astronaut wants to spread his wings and fly once more – and return to his childhood dream.

This breathtaking story is an amazing opportunity to experience true weightlessness and float in space. In VR animation you can look beyond the flat image and see things that are normally hidden from our eyes. It allows you to immerse yourself in the exciting atmosphere and feel part of the story.

Review: ‘Aripi’ is a short animated story about an astronaut who, as a child, dreamed of flying and being free. And now it seems he’s flying in the sky, but actually, he’s locked in the capsule of a spacecraft. One day, minor problems lead to bigger problems, causing the spaceship to lose control and collapse on Earth. While it only lasts for just shy of ten minutes the animation is amazing and the story is powerful enough not to need any spoken words at all. You either love this sort of experience or hate it, but I am firmly in the love camp. Sure, I wish it was free or a lot cheaper, but I am happy to pay given the quality of the experience.
