HOW WILL IT WORK 

 

The broadcasting legend will talk about his favourite fossils from the Natural History Museum in London during a new experience developed by Sky VR.

 

The 'immersive experience' will be available on the Sky VR app which is compatible with the Oculus Rift VR headset.

 

Sky claims that users will be able to 'handle' the museum's most treasured fossils using VR grabbers.

 

The programme is still in development and will be released later this year.

 

Although the programme is still in development, Sky claims that users will be able to 'handle' the museum's most treasured fossils using VR grabbers.

 

The broadcaster said in the experience, called 'Hold the World', users will get 'hands-on' access to rare objects, while a hologram of Sir David offers his own unique insight on each specimen.

 

Sir David said: 'I have enjoyed helping people to discover more about the natural world, and Hold The World offers people a unique opportunity: to examine rare objects, some millions of years old, up close.

 

'It represents an extraordinary new step in how people can explore and experience nature, all from the comfort of their own homes and I am delighted to be able to help users uncover some of the treasures the Natural History Museum has to offer in a thrilling new way.'
