The People’s House (Oculus Rift)
Intro: The People’s House takes you on a historic visit to President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama’s White House. Through the transportive power of VR, the Obamas take you on an intimate journey inside the West Wing, Executive and Private Residences, reflecting on their time there, and recounting the building’s profound history since its creation over two centuries ago.
Review: Do they really call the “White House” the people’s house? Well, no. The United States House of Representatives is called “the People’s House”, colloquially and more commonly than that, the United States Capitol building, where Congress meets, is also called “the People’s House”. But it is true that some people (Obama only) call it “The People’s House”. Name history put aside, this is an all-access tour of the White House that you would have never seen before. Visiting the West Wing, Executive and Private Residences and even a few surprises.
Not only do you get the tour, but you also get to sit right next to former President Barack Obama himself (he’s surprisingly tall and skinny) as he tells you about his own feelings in the White House and also some of the histories behind it.
Verdict: At the end of the day, this is as close as you might ever get to seeing the inside of the White House. Sure, this is a little old now that President Trump is in power, but it is still a historical look that could become a good educational video one day. I’m not American and I didn’t particularly like Barack and Michelle Obama, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t feel a little excited about getting to see the things this video shows. Great quality video and at times wonderfully immersive.
