Description: We partnered with SESQUI, a Canada 150 Signature Initiative supported by the Government of Canada, to create virtual reality experiences for the celebrations in 2017. The result, MERIDIAN VR, is powered by the uForis engine and features six original, interactive VR stories by Canadian artists. A Tribe Called Red: Indian City 360° – Featuring music by Indigenous DJ crew, A Tribe Called Red, this interactive video features gradient audio that lets viewers “mix” a song with their eyes.

Review: This odd collection of six 360 videos is clearly something someone has put a lot of love into. But it’s a good job that it is free because I doubt I would have been happy paying for it. The videos streaming is not the best, but downloading them seems to take forever and there is no download bar to tell you how much is left. Once I got one downloaded I was pretty happy that the quality was OK, but when it came to the “interaction” there was very little of it that I could see making it little more than a 360 video with some very clever effects over the top of it. Interesting for sure, but maybe best if you are Canadian or have some interest in Canadian culture and history.
