Our first VR piece, 6x9 takes you to a virtual cell, telling a story of the psychological damage of extreme isolation. Right now, more than 80,000 people are in solitary confinement in the US. They spend 22-­24 hours a day in their cells, with little to no human contact for days or even decades. We invite you into this world.

You can watch the film with or without Cardboard.

Great app, astonishing actually
The Guardian is the best newspaper in the world in my estimation but garnering sympathy for murderers, rapists, and thieves is part of a corrupt uneducated liberal agenda of pure insanity. Liberal ideology is fine and desperately needed in todays climate but a lot of it has run amock. IMO criminals should be shot dead. no sympathy

Gets the point across
It is a short demo, but gives great insight on life in a cell. I can't imagine staying in one, nor do I plan on finding out. It's worth the download and worked great on my 6P.
Matteo Europeo review Matteo Europeo
Content spoilt by crashing..
Very powerful and well presented content. Unfortunately I still haven't managed to view it all as in 5 attempts it crashed every time at different points.. With no possibility other than always restarting from the beginning it's rather annoying.. And cannot explain why it would crash on a Galaxy S7..

Lol who cares no sympathy for the villians
This is ridiculous who feels sorry for this my apartment in nyc was worst than this. I use this on my kids so they can stay in school and not do drugs

Seems good but its buggy.
Tried a few times now and it keeps crashing as the meal is served, about 2 minutes in. I'm sure it would be a much deeper experience if it worked for me. I'm on an S7 with Google Cardboard.

Powerful but crashes a lot
Installed on Moto G (2nd gen 2015 model) with Android 6 and it will crash out at random places meaning starting again from the beginning. A real shame because it is a very powerful piece of art.
Rus Aurelian review Rus Aurelian
My review is based from a VR experience point of view, as the app permits a sort of 'cinematic' AR stile viewing as well. The VR is immersive enough, given 3D sound and center-view 'interactions' For what it wants to present, it does so wonderfully. The interactivity is limited to descriptions of some of the things you look at, and how inmates get to interact with them and the like... informative. (reminiscent of Count of Monte Cristo). it has a minimalist environment, (low texture detail) which is OK given that is meant to work through CardBoard on a wide array of phone specs. The reason this does not get 5/5 is the jittering. Surprisingly for such a small environment, on a high-end phone (Samsung S6) moving one's head at a speed faster than 90'/2s (any direction) it jitters painfully, in the truest sense of the word... painfully. Lastly, given that it is the 1st VR experience, Guardian, your app branding needs work: you either make a stand alone app 6x9... or you make an app that permits the choosing among different experiences... although you only have 1 so far... Granted it's the 1st and there is room for improvement with each iteration. Good Luck onward!

Great message.
Absolutely devastating. it changed my mind. Now the question is what can we do? How can we do to help those people not to damage themselves and others. Thank You Guardian for passing this important message to us.

Eye Opener
Great eye opener and educational. Seems to have pretty bad drift issue with the Samsung S5 though. By the time the video ended, I almost drifted 180 degrees.

Justin Kray review Justin Kray
Really evocative use of VR technology. I've been craving an experience with the technology that is educational, immersive, and asks important questions about society from an alternate perspective - and this app does a remarkable job of hitting all of those notes... I will say that the user's interactivity with the environment is limited, and this is more of a narrative space for the user to investigate, but the shifting in time works well to propel the story. Keep up the good work Guardian - show the potential of this technology!
Chris Mudge review Chris Mudge
But you can tell which comments are from Guardian readers. 'Powerful', 'evocative', 'devastating'? This is not an opera, but a brief insight into what it's like for a pretty serious criminal to live here. Oh do I detest liberalism. Criminals deserve to be punished.
Didzis Veinbergs review Didzis Veinbergs
Politics aside, this is a solid if early attempt at taking VR beyond mere entertainment. Moreover, in and by itself the piece is quite apolitical, although it may be hard not to come to some conclusions. Also, this probably should be shown to first-time offenders, just to suggest what may happen if they choose a life of crime.
Randy Tasajaya review Randy Tasajaya
I mean their IT products are really solid. For this app: the cinematography I'd say isn't the best, but the VR quality is good.
