While national Geographic’s well received drama GENIUS did its level best to transport viewers inside the mind of Albert Einstein, it was their mobile-based virtual reality companion app that managed to literally do the job. Using the most widely available VR delivery system possible to maximize users, the presentation played Einstein’s famous thought experiments out in real-time, visualizing and explaining the simple imaginary scenarios which Einstein used to unlock the secrets of relativity. A beautiful VR production, worthy of the series it promoted, and a benefit to all who experienced it.
