If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a virtual reality experience is an entire encyclopedia. CAPP is using innovative tools to help inform and educate Canadians about the country’s oil sands sector – including virtual reality (VR).
Oil Sands Virtual Tour
Experience the magic of virtual reality, ride inside an oil sands mine truck and learn about oil sands development and environmental performance. This behind-the-scenes tour will give you an incredible inside look at oil sands operations.
VR incorporates video, audio and animation, but goes beyond flat-screen video to create a one-of-a-kind experience that puts the viewer in the heart of the action. The beauty of VR is how it allows the viewer to be in situations that would normally be inaccessible.
CAPP’s oil sands VR lets you ride along in a huge haul truck, takes you inside a bitumen molecule, explains the sequence of surface mining, and provides quick facts – all of which adds up to a first-hand look into the fascinating world of Canada’s amazing oil sands – a powerful experience.
You can watch a 360 degree version suitable for viewing on a flat screen if you don’t have a VR headset. To navigate the 360 degree video version click and hold, within the video and drag in the direction you wish to view.
