Using the latest virtual reality technology, Lockup 360 gives viewers an unprecedented look into the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center – completely engrossing viewers in the lives of those who work and live inside the facility. Through in-depth profiles of both an inmate and officers in a county jail, the experience provides a completely immersive journey that takes audiences from outside the prison and into the cells and common areas that encompass the day-to-day lives of those within its walls.
Ratings and Reviews
Glad I tried it in spite of the negative reviews.
A toggle on the opening page gives the option of Virtual Reality, Side-By-Side (SBS) use. If you have VR goggles choose this option.
Take advantage of this feature by standing (unless you have a swivel chair or stool) and turning to look in all directions, including up & down.
The primary action will take place in one direction and your intuition will usually point you there, especially after you've adjusted to looking around.
The app also periodically superimposes screens over portions of the display. Eventually I stopped being annoyed by them and found them innovative.
I like this app. Try it. (I am using VRKIX headgear, which has a limited Field of View (FOV) _ about 60% _ which is disappointing. I like everything else about these glasses. But until they introduce a version with at least a 100% FOV (and it should be 120) I cannot recommend them.
Ironically It Locked Up my device
About 1:30 minutes in, the app completely locked up my device & I had to hard reboot it. Plus, I don't understand the split screen feature.
The virtual reality does not work properly because the left and right images are backwards! That means that object that are supposed to look far away look close, and vice versa.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
