Wait – A David Attenborough VR Tutor is coming?!
It’s possible that you, like us, have always harboured a secret ambition to be best friends with David Attenborough.
The soothing voice, the look of grandfatherly kindness, the stories of tracking rare species in remote corners of the globe — that’s BFF material right there, isn’t it?
Well, the bad news is you’re probably never going to get your wish.
The good news? You can at least make friends with his hologram.
On Thursday, Sky announced that they’re partnering with the Natural History Museum to create a virtual reality experience which will include a 3D hologram of Attenborough.
The Hold The World experience involves guests handling VR fossils and bones under the legendary TV presenter’s expert tutorage.
“I have enjoyed helping people to discover more about the natural world, and Hold The World offers people a unique opportunity: to examine rare objects, some millions of years old, up close,” Attenborough said in a press release.
“It represents an extraordinary new step in how people can explore and experience nature, all from the comfort of their own homes and I am delighted to be able to help users uncover some of the treasures the Natural History Museum has to offer in a thrilling new way.”
