As an Oculus Mobile Jam submission, Ramble’s demo is made for Venice, namely, the “City of Masks” because of its historical annual carnival celebration, which dated back from the year of 1162.  The idea is to enable and guide the users to discover and learn about the world’s most fascinating cities virtually.

Users are guided by audio of an gentleman that sounds like a professor with rounded glasses and mustache, 3D models, infographic, 360 degree photography, and interactive objects.  Users can interact with objects such as the lion with wings using Samsung Gear VR’s touch pad, touch pad is also used as the tool to navigate vertically or horizontally inside Ramble’s virtual environment.

Ramble by Cubicle Ninjas has combined virtual tourism, storytelling, and education all into one highly entertaining app. Users can enjoy their virtual tour while being educated via intriguing stories about the city in the form of virtual narrative.  Definitely more interesting and engaging than watching TV, reading the same old text book, or sitting in a history class, wouldn't you agree ?
