David Attenborough Is Making an Oculus Rift Nature Documentary

April 11, 2014 | Andy Cush

Conquest of the Skies — a forthcoming nature documentary from David Attenborough — is a shoo-in to the pantheon of greatest-ever films to watch whilst stoned. How do I know? Besides the master documentarian’s mind-boggling pedigree — Life on Earth, Planet Earth, Blue Planet — there’s the fact that it’s being filmed with a 360-degree eight-camera rig and will be released on Oculus Rift. You’ll be able to turn around and see what’s behind you!

The film is set in Borneo, and is slated to air (presumably in non-VR form) on British TV late this year. Prepare thyself.
