Bringing rural New Zealand into the world of VR

22 Apr 2016
Animation Research Ltd captured the world of sheep and dairy farming last week in full 360 degree video glory as part of their ongoing partnership with Ngai Tahu Tourism. We visited the world famous Agrodome in Rotorua, where we were invited into the recreate their Farm Show and Farm Tour for use in the Samsung Gear Virtual Reality Headsets. With 70% of Chinese tourists who visit New Zealand going through the Agrodome, it is a very popular place and we could see why. From shearing sheep, milking a cow, playing with the lambs and rabbits and seeing the dog trials, there was a lot to get on camera.

We also tested out their new experience the BackCountry Adventure Tour on an ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle) riding around all the hard to reach parts of the farm and getting up close and personal with the llamas! After two days on the farm we headed out on the Huka Falls Jet to capture the beauty of the powerful waterfall and the excitement of the high speed ride. These Virtual Reality videos will all be part of Ngai Tahu’s innovative display at Trenz, New Zealand’s largest Tourism Conference in May.
