My Favorite Experiments in Virtual Reality! Backyard Scientist in VR

I met up with Amaze at playlist live, and we thought it would be fun to reshoot some of my favorite videos in virtual reality. For the fully immersive 3D 4K experience, download Amaze on the Samsung gear VR Oculus store.

I know a lot of you have been asking for more rocket knife and giant mousetrap so this was the perfect time to try some new stuff.
The Rocket knife was giving me problems though, I couldn’t get the track aligned 100% and the rockets kept exploding when they hit a bump :O we still got some cool shots though!

The firework was way more powerful than I thought it would be. and louder. The neighborhood enjoyed that one.

Have an idea for a VR video? Contact Amaze at and say I sent you!
