The Far-out, It Will Blow Your Mind Paul McCartney App
Yeah, yeah, yeah! Those three simply words are iconic now and back in 1964 when The Beatles sang, 'She Loves You". It was HOW they sang them-filled with youth and love angst that drove the song to #1. Paul McCartney was one its authors and today, with his blessing, their is a new Paul McCartney app from Jaunt VR. The name of the app is, well, Paul McCartney. It is not about the Beatles, but the virtual 360-degree experience puts the viewer smack on stage with Sir Paul during his Live and Let Die concert. The app can only be used with the Google cardboard 3D headset for $10. But, the app is FREE.
It can be used with an Android phone and iPhone 6. Marketing execs will tell you, if you are introducing a new problem, a sure way to success it to somehow connect with the Beatles, somehow, in some way. So, that is what the app maker did.
What the buyer gets is an incredible, far-out, 3D experience through the 3D stereoscopic view making each image slightly different in each eye. The viewer is treated with a full 3D 360-degree experience that seems to put you right there on stage as Paul and others are playing the Live and Let Die song (the song was the theme to a Bond movie back in 73 or so). You see the crowd as Paul sees the crowd. Paul seems to be right there next to you. It is like an after death experience, you know, you see them, but no one acknowledges you. When you turn your head, you see the stage and band members. The smoke effects of the that concert are very well recreated eerily. You might swear you went back in time, seriously!
Moving did nothing but it was VERY much like you were on stage with the band and a participant. Another realistic thing was that when you turn your head away from Paul, the volume decreased. The only minor drawback is that one cannot fast forward or manipulate the experience at all and resolution could be sharper.
