Fly me to the moon


It was Sunday. We were leaving the MK2 bibliothèque movie-theater & on the way back home we passed in front of the weirdest room... 

 

A dozen people were plugged to a giant octopus, with helmets on. 

      

Brownian movements by some, others are motionless, others have playstation controllers in their hands... 

 

 A bit scary, I have to say :)

   

OBVIOUSLY, we went in !

 

This weird room is in fact the last virtual reality venue, open since a little less than 2 months (December 2016).

 

12 experiences are proposed, in total immersion & total...non reality :)

How does mk2 VR works ?


You have to make a reservation for a time slot, then you wait for your turn.

 

Well, that part's nice : the VR (virtual reality) room is in the same space as the Perchoir. You know, the rooftop bar in Menilmontant and on the BHV Marais. 

We can then have a drink whilst waiting, or after :) 

 

 

When it is your turn, you go inside the room & you go from experience to experience. 

 

It's kind of crazy :)

What are the available experiences ?

Video games, like Star wars Battlefront or simply watching a movie, like Assasin's Creed

Star Wars
Star Wars

You can play a Star Wars character in the special Battlefront videogame : in a spaceship you are in the midst of an intergalactic war ! Well, if you are not familiar with the PS controller, no need to go there. 

 

OR else, you can be the inside spectator of a movie by following Assasin's Creed hero. That's not so bad !

Fly over Paris in "I'm like a bird" mode

Last but not least, I tested the experience of flying over Paris !

Well, it's not actual REAL Paris, it's a post-apolcalyptic Paris.

It's the jungle everywhere in the streets, nature has reclaimed, Sacré Coeur stairs are replaced by a waterfall etc.

 

The experience offers you to pretend to be a BIRD and FLY over and in Paris streets.

:)

 

The presentation video is really catchy, there it is just below.

Well... In Real life it is not the same effect.

Proof of this : you will also find below a video of me whilst testing the flying over Paris experience.

 

You'll see there's a slight difference between advertisement & real life... event if it's virtual reality :) 

 

Conclusion


It's super fun... just don't be afraid of being ridicule because you REALLY look DUMB :) :) :)
