If you love Sir David Attenborough's documentaries, you'll love this.

We're firmly of the opinion that Sir David Attenborough could narrate the story of a man reading the phone book and it would still be utterly captivating, but  if you've ever wanted to be a part of his wildlife adventures, the London Natural History Museum has just the thing for you.

Rather than risk the wrath of nature or suffer through the harsh cold/desert climates, they're providing you with a ‘hands-on’ experience of working alongside Sir David.

In collaboration with Sky, they've created a virtual reality experience that combines interactive video game technology with TV footage.

The cutting-edge technology will allow users to hold up, tilt and observe various fossils, bones and skulls from the museum’s world-famous collection.

The new VR experience is commissioned by the Sky VR Studio and Sir David Attenborough commented: "I have enjoyed helping people to discover more about the natural world, and Hold The World offers people a unique opportunity: to examine rare objects, some millions of years old, up close. It represents an extraordinary new step in how people can explore and experience nature, all from the comfort of their own homes and I am delighted to be able to help users uncover some of the treasures the Natural History Museum has to offer in a thrilling new way."

We reckon that this interactive experience will be so popular that there might be some competition to be first in line.
