This new app has many old favourite locations from the ability to stand on Mars, visiting the Salt Flats, New Year’s Fireworks on Hong Kong Harbour or chill looking at the Northern Lights. Many new delights await including caverns, Bond moments and new iconic locations from around the world.

This has been specifically optimized for the Google Cardboard, but works really well with the DODOcase Smartphone VR Viewer (http://goo.gl/jZNl6y), the Durvios Dive (http://goo.gl/UE5f4Z) and the Stooksy VR. If you have any Smartphone VR Viewer (Cardboard or Plastic) you will enjoy this experience. Crank up the sound or use those headphones!
General Information, thanks and credits
The Photo Sphere community has produced some fantastic pieces of photography and until now have been limited to displaying them on flat screens. Virtual Reality technologies are changing this. Orbulus puts you in the center of the composition. We are presenting many of the best examples of this work from around the world, with the creators permissions, for you to enjoy at your own pace.
