What was it like to see a 65-ton dinosaur lumber across the earth?

Check out this virtual reality documentary from Drexel University film student Valentina Feldman, hosted by the leader of the team that discovered it, Rowan University paleontologist Ken Lacovara.

In making the film, Feldman and Lacovara relied on digital scans of the giant beast's bones. They also got input from Drexel students Kristyn Voegele and David McDevitt, who have been studying the animal's biomechanics. 

The film is free to download and is compatible with a variety of virtual reality platforms, such as Google Cardboard and Oculus Rift.

There's also a 360-interactive version viewable online. Use your mouse to pan around on the screen to see various features of the film as Lacovara speaks.

Lacovara plans to use it as part of the curriculum at the Rowan Fossil Park in Sewell, starting in September, and the hope is that it will be used in K-12 classrooms.
