What is it?
If you would like to walk virtually through the byAMFI Statement Store, located in Amsterdam, you need two things: 1) a  Google Cardboard and 2) the Virtual Reality Tour byAMFI-app, which you can download in the Play Store. A Google Cardboard is actually not much more than a cardboard box where you can put your smartphone in and two lenses. The app consists out of different 360 degrees photos of the store and a voice over.

Where spotted?

How does it work?

Open the app, put your smartphone in the cardboard and you are good to go. You see the store through the special lenses and that’s what makes it virtual. It is just like you are inside the store! You can literally look around and listen to what the voice over has to say about the store, all at your own pace. When you are ready to go further, you just look at a cirkel on the ground. That way the app knows you want to go to the next ‘scene’. In total, you can stand in six different places in the store.

What is its core value?
Making it possible to experience this store online, almost in the same way you would have experienced it in real life.
