The MarineVerse team, Greg & Olga, had a chance to spend some time in Hobart during the Sydney to Hobart race. Pictures and comments by Greg below:

We took a few photos, some of them using Google Cardboard Camera App that we would like to share with you.

If you have Google Cardboard, you can get a taste of virtually being there for real.

If you have Google Cardboard Camera App and follow this instructions you should be able to view these pictures in 3D :-)

[…]download the VR photo to their phone’s “Downloads” or “Pictures” folder.

If the person you shared the photo with downloads the Cardboard Camera app for Android, the VR photo will show up in their Cardboard Camera gallery on their Android phone.
