Virtual Reality Game Lets Fans Hang Out In Jerry Seinfeld’s Apartment [Video]
Take a walk around Jerry's iconic pad with your Oculus Rift.
Amid all the highminded plans for the Oculus Rift, it's nice to see that someone is developing for it just for fun. Greg Miller, a young man whose “hobbies” include urban exploration, software development, music and art, is just one of the medium's first intrepid explorers, creating a virtual reality game that allows you to explore Jerry's house from the iconic TV show Seinfeld in 3D virtual reality.
The project was particularly appropriate to the medium, Miller said on his website: “Television is virtual reality in some ways. We make believe that Jerry's place is actually a Manhattan studio and Monks Cafe is just down the street. We suspend the reality that his apartment is just a set in Hollywood, with tons of cameras and lighting dangling overhead.” Allowing people to walk through a reality created by a television set can make the experience even realer for them than it is for the actors who traversed the set every day.
