Obamas in VR tour of the White House
The Obamas have joined forces with Oculus and Felix & Paul Studios to deliver a 360 degree, VR tour of the White House. ‘The People’s House: Inside the White House with Barack and Michelle Obama’ launched on January 13, available on Facebook and Oculus Video for Rift and Gear VR.

Nine famous areas of the White House are explored in the video from the viewpoints of Barack and Michelle Obama. Oculus also plans to release a longer version of the tour in the near future. 

In a comment on the Oculus Blog, President Obama said: “Michelle and I always joke, we’re just renters here ... the owners are the American people and all those invested in creating this amazing place with so much history.

“What we want to do is make sure that everybody felt they had access to it ... that as many people as possible could come in and appreciate the place where Lincoln or FDR or Reagan had made decisions that helped to shape America.”
