The new and innovative technology makes Visit Belfast one of the leaders in the use of the technology. The app incorporates hot-spots, live-action footage and computer-generated graphics.
The free app offers users a unique tour around Belfast and is best viewed through the Belfast virtual reality viewer.
Viewers join young French and Spanish people who are living in Belfast, on a tour of “their Belfast”, immersing the viewer in the sights, history and nightlife of the city from their perspective.
