Chernobyl remains one of only two level 7 events on the International Nuclear Event Scale. With the new Chornobyl360 virtual reality documentary about the event. This will be a living documentary, over time the team behind it is hoping to add additional material and with VR technology getting better every day, I’m betting there may also be some enhancement of existing scenes in the future. Some of the new content will be restricted to platforms like Oculus, Playstation VR, HTC Vive. Keep an eye out for their Kickstarter being launched on February 8th.
