"Pilgrimage", visit to Mecca for hajj, from NYTVR, in virtual reality


The New York Times Virtual Reality app offers a 5-minute virtual reality film “Pilgrimage”, showing what a pilgrim experiences when he goes on the Hajj in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, link, shot by Luca Locatelli.

As you rotate your cell phone in space, you sell all 360 degrees (or "2 pi radians") of a real-life visit. 

Note the link to another aerial photo of Mecca and the kaanba from above.

  

This is a journey that the average non-Muslim could never take or see personally.
