The New York Times' latest VR film takes you on the campaign trail

The New York Times has published a brand new virtual reality film about the current U.S. presidential campaign. Now available in the NYT VR app, you can grab your Google Cardboard headset and hit the campaign trail.

The film, called "The Contenders," lets you experience a number of political events held by both Republican and Democratic candidates. Watch Hillary Clinton speak with college students, or Ted Cruz engaging with voters at a small-town diner. Get a wide view of events, taking a look at the stage or swinging around to see the crowds drawn by these contenders.

Download the NYT VR app from the Google Play Store now to get started with "The Contenders."
