David Attenborough’s First Life is a fully immersive experience that brings natural history to life with cinematic virtual reality.

Created in partnership with Atlantic Productions and the Natural History Museum, David Attenborough’s First Life reveals the dawn of life on Earth from 540 million years ago.

Based on the latest Museum research, long-extinct animals such as the whimsically-built Opabinia, the fearsome-looking Anomalocaris and the spiny, worm-like Hallucigenia are brought vividly alive in a fully immersive encounter.

During the 15-minute experience, visitors dive through ancient seas with narration by Sir David Attenborough. The experience uses Samsung’s latest wearable technology, the Gear VR virtual reality headsetpowered by the Galaxy S6 smartphone to deliver a shared experience to 80 visitors.
