If your invitation to the Presidential Inauguration got lost in the mail, you’re in luck: USA Today will be live-streaming the event in 360-degrees thanks to some customized Nikon KeyMission 360s. Cameras will be positioned at the Capitol, the National Mall and along the parade route so that viewers can take in the whole event. It will all be broadcast on USA Today’s YouTube channel. For a truly immersive experience, you’ll be able to use the YouTube app with your VR goggles.
The Inauguration live-stream is part of USA Today’s ‘VRtually There‘ platform. Its range of VR content varies from strolls through Yosemite to a casual swim with sharks in Oahu. To be honest, we didn’t think anyone would come up with a cheesier name than KeyMission, but ‘VRtually There’ might take the prize.
The Inaugration festivities begin at 9:30am ET on January 20th.
