Ground Beneath Her Virtual Reality Project Needs an Update

The United Nations have released a virtual reality project following the massive earthquake that rocked Nepal in April 2015.


When this review was first posted, I had technical difficulties with the application. In less than a week the developers fixed the application, and it runs properly now. 

During my first run I utilized the audio playback. I used my imagination to paint a virtual reality picture in my mind. Overall, I didn’t get sick from the motion of modern VR, and was able to still get into the rebuilding efforts in Nepal.

“The physical and emotional pain of a natural disaster can shake lives long after the world forgets the immediate damage and hardships.”

“In Ground Beneath Her, viewers gain a better understanding of scars that remain after events like the Nepal earthquake.” – director Gabo Arora

After the update, I was able to experience additional depth with visuals in connection to the moving story by the narrator.
