You Can Virtually Hang Out In Seinfeld's Apartment
Monday, March 03, 2014 - 12:29 PM
Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset -- you strap it on your head, and it lets you explore a virtual 3D space. Greg Miller has recreated a 3D rendering of Seinfeld's sitcom apartment for Oculus Rift, which means that anyone with an OR headset can download his project and sit around pretending that they're talking about nothing.
For those of us who don't buy expensive virtual reality devices, here's a YouTube tour that shows the project's progression.
Weirdly, there's something sad feeling about it. Either because the apartment's empty, or maybe because 3D rendered spaces always feel sterile and fake, particularly when they're emulating something that feels realer.
Anyway. We're aware we've stumbled on some strange theme today (90's nostalgia recreated on computers). Not sure what that's about. Happy Monday.
