Hold the World is an educational VR experience from Sky and Factory 42 that takes you to London’s Natural History Museum, putting you face to face with Sir David Attenborough.

Through the use of high-quality volumetric video capture and photogrammetry, he takes you behind the scenes to areas of the history museum that are not accessible to the general public.


Within theseĀ  areas you are given the ability to handle and resize some of the rare specimens from its world-famous collection, all while Sir David Attenborough teaches you important facts about how the animals lived.
