Jurassic World: Apatosaurus

Description: The Jurassic World: Apatosaurus VR Experience allows the viewer for the first time to see what it feels like to be in the presence and close proximity of a living dinosaur and to experience a sense of connection with it – with the mixture of awe, striking beauty and danger that this implies.

Review: Whoever created the graphics in this app deserves an Oscar. Apart from the stunning vegetation (and of course this monster of a sauropod) there are loads of extras to discover. A Jeep, walkie-talkie and a flask among them. Just look around a bit and enjoy the scenery while you still can. The peace and quiet won’t last long. If you ever wanted to see your 80 year old grandmother go “Ah” and “Oh” and “Squeak”, put some Samsung Gear VR on her and launch Jurassic World: Apatosaurus VR. But make sure you’ve planted her on a safe chair first.

The dinosaur will finally wake up and now it’ll get really interesting. The 3D effect is stunning. Together with the amazing graphics and audio it creates a feeling of immersion that I haven’t found in many apps yet. The apatosaurus will come from far away to very close and you almost feel its breath on your face. Grandma will probably make a jump backwards, so make sure you’re ready to catch her. You should also have a video camera ready to film her reaction. That video will be a hit at countless family gatherings. The dinosaur will eventually go back to sleep, but until then this going to be a hell of a ride.

Since you’re not really doing anything it couldn’t be any easier. Make sure you’ve adjusted the focus on your Gear VR perfectly to the eyesight of the person you’re showing this to. The better you do that the better the 3D effect is going to be. Just launch the app and let the show begin. I usually tell my victims to look around a bit before the dinosaur wakes up. Watching the scenery they often let down their guard which makes the apatosaurus waking up more of a surprise. If you want to show off your sparkling new Samsung Gear VR to friends and family, this is the app to do it with. Not much to do, but it really shows off the visual effects and immersion one experiences with VR.
