Armenia

Recently, Armenia’s historical, cultural, and natural sights were captured in full by 360 degree images. Ucom, an Armenian isp, and 360Stories, a film crew, carried out this massive undertaking. The end result is stunning.

As I navigated through the images of 360 Great Armenia, I was pleasantly surprised by not only the lack of lag, but by how much I felt like I was playing a video game. (Get on that, developers. We want to find clues or treasure in these VR apps!)

Although I couldn’t find many references to Armenia in popular culture, that is too bad, as this country would be an excellent backdrop for movies. A Bollywood movie was filmed there in summer 2017, and multiple Armenian movies (obviously) have been set in Armenia.

The real reason to visit Armenia is for it’s own sake; it is rich in history, culture, and beautiful scenery. The 360 images only whet the appetite (and you can’t taste the food through a picture!) and you will be begging for more before the end of the VR tour.
