Gear VR Review Day 5

VRSE (now called Within)

VRSE is also another app that I’m familiar with from my iPad and the first thing that I watched was the first thing that I watched on iPad, which was called “Walking in New York”. It’s a documentary about a photograph for the New York Times that JR had made. It was cool to see it in Gear, although the resolution wasn’t as good as the iPad but at least I felt like I was really there.

I knew this interview had been shot with binaural sound but after the studio interview, the voice over came in and was not spatialized. I was thinking that they should have had the binaural audio through the whole thing and just mix the voice over on top. They didn’t do that so it was a bit distracting.
