On Our Radar
There are excellent educational and documentary VR experiences that didn’t quite make our Top List. Many of them are worth checking out. In fact, some just weren’t included because they aren’t quite finished yet or might not have met all required criteria. Some candidates from the Watch List may move to the Top List in the future.
In the interest of a complete directory of notable VR documentaries, we’ve added our Watch List below. Is there something missing from this list? Let us know in our Community Area or on Social Media.
