VR experience captures the forest through the eyes of an animal

Some lucky folks got the chance to explore the woods through the eyes of a forest inhabitant, and they didn't have to be wargs with dire wolves or, you know, tripping on certain substances. They have the virtual reality experience created by a London-based team called "Marshmallow Laser Feast" to thank for that. MLF used LIDAR scanners and aerial drones to capture the picturesque Grizedale forest as the animals living in it would see it -- it's even entitled In the Eyes of the Animal. The team then created a 360-degree, whimsical experience out of the footage, which people who attended the Abandon Normal Devices (AND) Festival in the UK got to try out.

The team used a VR helmet that enclosed people's faces for a truly immersive experience -- yes, it came with sounds -- designed to look like a tree stump. According to The Creators Project, the team's looking for partners to develop this project further. For now, though, you can watch the video below for a glimpse of a fantastical forest that looks like it came straight out of the dreamworld.
