Tiger, giant tortoise, penguin 360° Virtual Reality videos


This video series from the Netherlands says about itself:

February 2016: VR Gorilla and Dierenpark Amersfoort collaborated in creating several 360° VR experiences.

We shot footage of [African] penguins, coypus, meerkats, [Aldabra giant] tortoises and.. one big tiger! This was the main event for the day. Our plan was to place our 360° cam inside the tigers’ terrain, close to a bungee cord with a big chunk of meat attached to it. We sort of assumed the tiger would leave the camera alone and go straight for the meat. We also figured the tiger would possibly leave most of the camera intact in case it would go for it..

We were wrong on both accounts! A full-grown Siberian tiger will eat our camera like candy, and as it turns out that’s exactly what it tried to do.. Fortunately for us he didn’t succeed, with thanks to the keepers at Dierenpark Amersfoort who insisted on coming up with a back up plan to pull the camera up into safety from the tiger’s claws. We are very glad they insisted on this, since our camera survived to shoot more videos.
