The Garden of Earthly Delights is a VR experience for Google Cardboard that celebrates one of the most famous Bosch paintings. Via VRScout:
This dream-like first-person Google Cardboard VR experience is the latest app to celebrate the 500th anniversary of one of the world’s great surrealist paintings. Bosch VR explores each panel of The Garden of Earthly Delights through separate virtual reality rides – with the first more tame panel being free to download in the app store. The final panel brings you to hell, so brace yourself for that one.
Bosch VR was developed by creative agency BDH in collaboration with the Bosch 500 festival that takes place in the artist’s Netherlands hometown of ‘s-Hertogenbosch. A public installation of Bosch VR will be setup at the festival starting March 1st for attendees to get the full 360° experience.
What is Google Cardboard?
Google Cardboard allows users to experience VR in an affordable way: people can even fold their own. Called “VR on the cheap”, all you need is an Android or iOS phone, and was unveiled at the 2014 Google I/O. You just need to fold (or buy) your own, and then download the Google Cardboard app. Secure your phone into the app and you’re set!
