The Bohemian Rhapsody Experience: How Google Did It

via aNewDomain VR — Here’s what happens when you take 21st century tech and stir it up with that timeless 1970s anthem from the late Freddy Mercury and Queen.

It’s The Bohemian Rhapsody Experience from Google Play. Billed as “a journey through Queen frontman Freddie Mercury’s subconscious mind,” the AV-responsiveGoogle Cardboard app aims to make you feel like you’re onstage with the band. If you don’t have Google Cardboard, you can just downlaad the app to your mobile device and still dig the 360 degree video

Check it out and let our music editors know what you think. No Google Cardboard? You can view the 360 degree video anyway by downloading the BRE app on your mobile device here.
