NYCC: Skyscraper VR expertise is a trailblazer for letting you fake to be The Rock
Digital actuality has the magical capacity to take you to a vast array of locales, and a show I noticed on the New York Comedian-Con initially made the argument that the medium has reached its full potential. Primarily based on the Dwayne Johnson film Skyscraper, this “Not possible Leap” VR expertise allowed customers to reenact the long-lasting(?) sequence by which Johnson leaps from a crane into the skyscraper. Naturally, I felt compelled to reap the benefits of the chance change into The Rock.
To my disappointment, the expertise was not truly taking part in as Dwayne Johnson—I regarded right down to see if I had a digital prosthetic leg to solely discover that I used to be an nameless floating torso. After a quick demo that taught me find out how to stroll, utilizing your arms to flail the Vive controllers up and down, I used to be on an elevator heading to the highest of the crate; fairly than be The Rock, he was calling me on a cellphone, entrusting me to make the bounce to save lots of his household. I needed to be the Rock that The Rock himself couldn’t Rock.
I knew I could not let him down.
