Duran Duran Venture into Virtual Reality

August 10th, 2017

Happy Duran Duran Appreciation Day 2017!

To commemorate #DDAD17, Duran Duran decided to release two recently recorded videos, “Paper Gods” & “Hungry Like the Wolf.” Both songs were filmed in Oakland, CA on July 7th using 360 cameras, which allows the viewer to experience them in virtual reality!

Here are a few tips to maximize your 360-degree viewing experience:

View the Virtual Reality videos using your smart phone (iOS or Android) only:

•Click the link and when the video launches turn your phone horizontally to view full screen

•Best to watch on hi-speed wi-fi and in the highest quality possible, so when the video launches tap the screen and look for the three dots on the upper right side. Tap the dots and select Quality and then 1080 (or the highest resolution provided for your device)

•Once you start viewing hold the phone and turn your body to view the different stage angles and the crowd behind you

If you are tech savvy and have a Google Cardboard headset or other VR viewer:

•Click the link and when the video launches tap the screen to find the “Google Cardboard” image and tap it (the image looks like 3D glasses.) You’ll notice the screen splits into two smaller screens

•Best to watch on hi-speed wi-fi and in the highest quality possible, so when the video launches find the three dots on the upper right side. Tap the three dots and adjust the quality to 1080 or the highest resolution provided for your device

•Insert the phone into the Cardboard or VR viewer

View the Virtual Reality on a computer:

•If you don’t have a smart phone, you can watch on your computer and use the ‘toggle’ button in the top left hand of the screen to rotate your view point

•We recommend using Google Chrome browser. Read this article for information on how this best works

You are now ready to enjoy a ‪Duran Duran concert like never before!
