Nellie Bly, the pen name of Elizabeth Cochran, had an impressive resume, to say the least. Known for her pioneering journalism, Bly became famous for her support of women’s rights, undercover exposés and her world travels. Defying the status quo and challenging conventions, Bly became one of the most famous woman journalists of her time and founded the practice of investigative journalism with her hands-on approach to stories. Now, you can learn about her journey with Nellie Bly: The Virtual Reality Experience on Viveport.
Developed in partnership with Vive Studios, the Newseum, and Immersion, Nellie Bly: The Virtual Reality Experience is an interactive journey following the inspiring historical figure as she takes her record-breaking trip around the world. Bly’s career as a journalist skyrocketed when she reported on her travels and attempted to break the fictitious record set in Jules Verne’s adventure novel, Around the World in Eighty Days. In this new immersive experience, you’ll join Nellie Bly as she sets off on November 14, 1889, and travels the world in record speed by any vehicle (or donkey) necessary.
Nellie Bly: The Virtual Reality Experience is the third installment from Vive Studios’ partnership with the Newseum. Located in Washington, D.C., the Newseum’s mission is to increase public understanding of the importance of a free press and First Amendment rights. Along with the Nellie Bly experience, Newseum has also showcased VR experiences that educate audiences about the Unabomber investigation and the historical Berlin Wall in partnership with Vive Studios.
