Viva!’s Virtual Reality FaceOff App
Explore the reality of factory farming with Viva!’s new VR technology
In September 2023, Viva! proudly launched our groundbreaking FaceOff app, available on Meta devices. This provides users with a shocking 360-degree immersive experience inside a standard UK pig farm. Through this experience, we aim to shed light on the harsh reality of factory farming and the conditions to which these animals are subjected daily, from birth to the end of their very short lives.
What is a Meta Device?
Before we delve into the details of the FaceOff app, let’s briefly explain what a Meta device is. Meta devices are a type of virtual reality (VR) headset. Offering an immersive virtual reality experience by employing high-resolution displays, head and hand tracking for movement and interaction, 3D stereoscopic vision, spatial audio, and optional hand controllers, these headsets allow users to immerse themselves in virtual worlds and experiences, making them the perfect platform for our app.
