RYOT teams up with Microsoft on Windows Mixed Reality
While many still speak of VR as what's next, RYOT is making this medium very much a part of what's now.
The Emmy Award- and Academy-Award-winning studio is bringing 50+ of its original 360, VR and AR films to the Windows Mixed Reality platform.
"We're thrilled to work with Microsoft to now make RYOT's immersive video technologies available on the Windows Mixed Reality Platform. All of us at Oath see VR, AR and 360 as the future of storytelling for content creators and brands," said Frazer Hurrell, Creative Technologist for RYOT.
RYOT started in 2012 with the goal of using immersive technologies like VR, AR and 360 video to surface little-known stories of challenge and change around the globe. Within the app, users will be able to explore the top of the planet with "Inside the Arctic" and join the journey of a 14-year-old Syrian refugee in "Bashir's Dream."
Watch the trailer below to get a glimpse inside the free app and the films that will give Windows Mixed Reality users a closer look at our changing world.
