Among VR apps designed to dazzle, VRSE is one of the best around. Evolution of Verse, the star attraction, is a short film full of surreal imagery: a train chugs through a lake until it smashes into your position, and then bursts into thousands of winged creatures that again transform into confetti. It takes a weird twist at the end, and the video is just a few minutes long, but it’s worth watching a couple times and sharing with friends.
And the app has added a fair bit more since being one of the earliest Cardboard standouts: there's a mini-documentary about a Syrian refugee camp, a VICE News doc about the Millions March in New York City, U2 and Muse music videos, and more. All of it is free, too.
