A Walk through the White House

While it might be common to have seen the President or Press Secretary speaking in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room in the White House, far fewer people get to see the rest of the Press Corps area in the West Wing.

Via this 360-degree video tour, the FIA Spark Grant's Rest of the Story team presents you with an opportunity to walk through that part of the White House in the footsteps of a journalist, starting in the West Wing basement's Press Corps office space, moving to where the Press Secretary regularly briefs the media, and ending in the kitchenette where journalists might grab some coffee, a snack, or a meal during the day. If you click and drag inside the video frame, you can look around as the walk proceeds.

If you view this experience at www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ7KYxi5wZo&hd=1 on a mobile device using the YouTube app, you can control the view by moving your device and even view it in an AR/VR viewer like Google Cardboard.

If you do not have the YouTube app on your device, you can try to here and then click for fullscreen and touch the small compass to be able to move your mobile device to look around as the video plays.

If you have a "cardboard-ready" phone but do not have the YouTube app installed, you might be able to view it within a browser like Chrome on your phone and then insert your phone in the viewer after you click to start the video and click to split the view.
