New App Lets You Explore Hieronymus Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights” in Virtual Reality

Yesterday, Colin Marshall told you how you could take a Virtual Interactive Tour Through Hieronymus Bosch’s Masterpiece “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” thanks to this website.

Today, we discovered that there’s also an app (designed for iPhoneiPad and Android) that lets you take a virtual reality trip through the very same painting. Created as part of the 500th anniversary celebration of Bosch’s life, the app–previewed in the trailer above–lets you “ride on a flying fish into a Garden of Eden, be tempted by strange fruit and even stranger rituals in the Garden of Earthly Delights. And visit hell and hear the devil’s music.”

The app is free. And you can explore parts of Bosch’s famous triptych at no cost. It will cost you a small fee–$3.99–to unlock the remaining part.
