Google Cardboard app 'Jack White: Third-D' places you in the middle of a concert

A new virtual reality app titled Jack White: Third-D has just hit the Google Play store that will place Google Cardboard wearers in the middle of a Jack White concert from wherever they are located. The experience will also be hitting the Samsung Gear VR and Oculus Rift in the future as well.

In partnership with Jaunt, the technology company building the hardware and software to make truly immersive cinematic VR possible, Jack & Third Man have brought forth a mind-blowing mobile application that allows fans with a Google Cardboard viewer (learn more here) and a recent 5" or 6" Android phone to see him perform in a way no one ever has. "JACK WHITE: THIRD-D" was filmed using state of the art technology – Jaunt's proprietary 360 degree, stereoscopic 3D cameras and 3D sound-field microphones; it features music mixed in Dolby Atmos. Be "there" as Jack tears through "Freedom at 21" and "Ball and Biscuit" at Fenway Park and the seminal "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground" at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

The technology company behind the app was also involved with the Paul McCartney virtual reality concert experience.
