Einstein’s 360° Thought Experiment

National Geographic brought the extraordinary life of Albert Einstein to television with a series that featured both his most formative relationships and revolutionary discoveries. West Reading, PA based Neo-Pangea was tasked with using modern technology to make one of his most complicated fundamental ideas entertaining and understandable. Viewers use VR and interactive 360-degree technology go inside one of history’s greatest minds to learn how he thought.

To accomplish the task of teaching such a sophisticated topic Neo-Pangea immersed themselves in one of his groundbreaking Thought Experiments, distilling it down to a beautiful representation steeped in imagination. They resolved to push the boundaries of visual storytelling by building a painterly blend of 2D Illustrations and 3D environments that would bring the sense of time and space necessary to our topic.

I was tasked with providing all the audio services for this project. From sound effects to the level of the music in the background, it all fell under my purview. The result is an all immersive audio and visual VR experience that leaves you feeling like you’re right there in the train car.
