(JW Insights) Sep 8 -- Chinese virtual reality headset maker Pico, owned by tech giant ByteDance, has collaborated with esteemed documentary production company Discovery Channel and the renowned explorer Edward James Stafford to launch its first-ever VR interactive documentary titled "Surviving Africa with Ed Stafford", reported China Daily.

Filmed entirely on location on the vast and diverse African continent, this groundbreaking series provides a unique and immersive experience for viewers, featuring interactive and engaging storylines such as "hand-drilling for fire" and "hunting for guinea fowl", Pico said.

According to the company, as "first-view" photographers, audiences will have the unprecedented opportunity to accompany Stafford on his thrilling expeditions, coming face-to-face with exotic wildlife and experiencing the exhilaration of surviving in the untamed African savannah.

This series comprises three episodes where the audience will be playing the part of Stafford's photographer, accompanying him on his journey through East Africa, according to the China Daily report.
