LOS ANGELES, Nov. 22, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- Using the OZO VR camera from Nokia, a new app created by film director Pearry Teo and Seven Interactive offers a 3D 360-degree view of the Netherlands full-size replica of the Ark of Noah. The complementary Bible VR app is available on the Google Play store and the iOS version was approved by Apple and available on itunes, itunes.apple.com/us/app/bible-vr/id1160945586?ls=1&mt=8.
The Ark of Noah VR project, www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lIGVZiTulY made possible by a partnership with Nokia, is the first VR adoption in the faith-based industry. The Ark of Noah is part of the Bible VR collection that allows users to directly experience the Gospels through 3D virtual reality. Built by carpenter Johan Huibers, is a full-size replica of the biblical Ark. Currently docked in the Netherlands, the Ark has served as a destination for hundreds of thousands of visitors since its completion in 2013. With five decks, the Ark is constructed of Swedish pine wood, 95 feet wide and 75 feet tall, it is longer than a football field and can hold more than 5,000 people at one time.
The Nokia OZO is a state-of-the-art virtual reality camera designed to capture 360 degree spherical video and surround-sound. Billed as the world's first all-in-one professional VR camera.
In addition to giving viewers an opportunity experience the sights and sounds of the Ark of Noah through the VR app, the project hopes to raise funds for the non–profit Ark of Noah Foundation. Future plans of the Foundation include supporting transportation of the Ark to world ports of call to serve as an interactive, informative cultural museum and event center. "Our next steps are to create VR simulations of what it is like inside Johan's Ark when it is populated with animals and sailing in the storm. We are already designing interactive games and integrating live streaming within the Ark when it sets sail" declares Mr. Teo.
Considered the first Singaporean movie director to become established in Hollywood, Mr. Teo is screenwriter, director, and co-founder of FigTree VR, a principal player in the Bible VR enterprise. Seven Interactive, developer of the Ark of Noah app delivery platform, is a Los Angeles based mobile, web, and print design firm.
