Red Bull Air Race and Google Daydream
Now available on Google's Daydream VR platform, the Red Bull Air Race LIVE VR lets viewers get closer than ever before to the high speed air racing action of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship – both live and on-demand.
Real flights, real data, real-time VR
The Red Bull Air Race LIVE VR experience utilises real-time telemetry data straight from the pilot's cockpit and recreates the flight in a 360° virtual reality, so viewers can become fully immersed in a race from different angles and viewpoints. The VR experience is fuelled by live flight data like latitude, longitude, roll, pitch, and airspeed to generate breath-taking perspectives and a real dimensional live visualisation of the pilots' view. Fans are also able to track the speed of the pilot as well as how much G-force they are pulling.
The Daydream View headset and any Daydream-ready smartphone transport viewers right into the racetrack. Using the Daydream controller users can easily navigate through the experience freely choosing multiple viewpoints, including the cockpit.
The Red Bull Air Race LIVE VR experience is now available via Daydream-ready smartphones like the Pixel and the Daydream View headsets, through the Google Play Store. The current version of the app offers on-demand content and highlights from selected 2018 World Championship races.
Daydream View is currently available in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Korea, Puerto Rico, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States.
