Barack Obama – one of the United States’ favourite presidents – is on his way out of office. And now, he and his family are giving guided 360-degree and VR tours of The White House.
Announced in a recent Oculus blog post,”The People’s House: Inside The White House With Barack and Michelle Obama” can be found on Facebook as 360 video, Oculus Rift and Gear VR.
It allows viewers to access nine areas in The White House – some of which are off limits to tours. The Oval Office for example.
“This house belongs to you, and to every American. For eight years, just a short chapter in the long story of our democracy, my family also had the privilege of calling the White House home.” —President Obama. Join the President and the First Lady for a preview of a 360° tour of the White House taking you into some of the most historic rooms of the People’s House, from the Situation Room to the Oval Office.(Created by Félix & Paul Studios and Oculus)

[quote]Because as beautiful as these buildings are, it’s the people in them and the work that’s done here, the triumphs and tragedies you experience over course of your years here—that’s what imbues a place with meaning.[/quote]
