Animating the Biodiversity Wall
On the following pages, we present a brief Virtual Reality movie on the relation between diversity, nature, and our own human species.
On normal devices (computer, smartphone) you can view the film as a 360° movie (remember to pan around).
However, if you have a smartphone with cardboard or any other VR headsets, you can view the video as a truly amazing VR Story!
