This ‘Club’ Wants People To Dance In Virtual Reality

VR company High Fidelity has created a dance club in VR, where people (in avatar form) can experience a different world of dancing. The company wants to provide VR experiences that bring people together in a different dimension. The experience is supposed to feel very close to reality, with the avatars mimicking the movements only delayed by about a tenth of a second.

Of course, users also get to experience a crazy combination of lights, music and voices. When avatars speak to each other, their mouths are also in sync. They even also have the ability to defy gravity in this world. Users wear vests so when other avatars touch theirs, they actually experience the touch.

Philip Rosedale, CEO of High Fidelity (and one of the creators behind Second Life), wants to expand these VR experiences to include going on virtual school trips, where teachers can take their students to the pyramids in Egypt. Rosedale believes in the potential of social experiences within VR and wants to create more opportunities for them.
