‘The Slow Mo Guys VR’ Brings Scientific Showmanship to Oculus TV on Quest

With over 13M YouTube subscribers, The Slow Mo Guys know a thing or two about entertaining an audience. And today, they’re bringing their unique brand of British humor and scientific curiosity to Oculus TV on Oculus Quest!

The eight-part series was produced using specialist stereoscopic high-speed cameras and ambisonic audio recording techniques, so you can experience the action from inside the experiment.

You’ve heard of fighting fire with fire. Well, take a peek at The Slow Mo Guys’ most modern method to date: fighting fire with a grenade.

What motivated you to bring The Slow Mo Guys into VR?

VR gives them the chance to finally be part of the action. A 3D slow-motion experience is indescribably unique, and VR is really the perfect way to share that.

How long were the VR episodes in production? Any fun anecdotes to share?

Producing 180° stereoscopic slow-motion footage is a complex and complicated task. Filming at 1,000 frames a second per eye produces terabytes of data. Using a camera that can see behind itself is quite a task, especially when it can see its own feet.

Did you encounter any technical challenges? If so, how did you overcome those obstacles?

GF: When you’re filming thousands of frames per second on two different cameras—at the same time—it’s important that the exposure of both cameras occurs at the same time, down to the microsecond.

What’s your favorite of the VR episodes and why?

GF: When talking about creating a unique experience, the wire wool episode ( Inside a Dome of Sparks ) really shows how true that is.
