Hang With The Gang From ‘Silicon Valley’ In HBO’s New VR App
The television network created a new virtual reality experience as a way to promote the fifth season of its hit show and join the VR bandwagon
The gang from American television network HBO’s hit comedy series Silicon Valley is back, and this time with a VR app to complement the return. Joining the trend of popular shows and movies using virtual reality technology to promote their content, HBO launched a new interactive 360 experience called “Silicon Valley: Inside the Hacker Hostel.”
The new VR app allows viewers to interact with the show’s neurotic tech workers. Users begin the game in the famous incubator where the characters work and can do everything from help with tasks like solving a coding disaster with Richard or destroying hard drives with Gilfoyle to simply making toast in the kitchen. There are 750 interactive items on the app available for viewers to enjoy. The show airs every Sunday on HBO and the app is currently available on all digital devices.
