Google’s first VR Doodle honors filmmaker Georges Méliès.
Visit the Google home page today (May 3rd) and you’ll find an unusual Doodle of a stick-thin man with a pristine suit. Click and you’ll be presented with a YouTube player that brings the quirky figure — French filmmaker Georges Méliès — and his creations to life in a wonderfully animated 360-degree short. Google is calling it a VR Doodle, which it is, sort of. Back to the Moon will be part of the Spotlight Stories app, which works with Cardboard and Daydream headsets. It will also be available for high-end VR headsets, such as the HTC Vive, through Steam and Viveport.
