Virtual Reality Firm Within Launches First Original Series


There was a call for more virtual reality content last week during CES, and this morning, VR firm Within responded with the launch of its first original VR series, The Possible.

The five-part series — a look at scientific and technical innovation — was directed by David Gelb (Netflix series Chef’s Table) and produced by June Cohen. Funding was provided by General Electric with additional funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Mashable, a presenting partner, created two related video series to support the launch. Within’s production arm, Here Be Dragons, provided production support.

The first episode, which debuts Thursday through the Within VR app, is titled “Hello Robot” and takes viewers inside the Boston Dynamics lab for a look at robotic species. That will be followed by “Listening to the Universe,” “Speed Machine,” “Space Balloon” and “Hoverboard.”
