My Pick of the Day is actually two picks, but they are connected to each other so I am going to talk about them as one. You can watch the video I made while exploring these two experiences in my Oculus Rift here on YouTube.
The two Sansar experiences in this video are called Neptune’s Revenge and Rune, and both were created by Maxwell Graf (the man behind the well-known brand Rustica in Second Life). Maxwell makes highly effective use of 360-degree video in evoking the sensation of being on a boat at sea during a raging storm. He also uses a teleporter to take you from the stormy sea to a safe harbour, Rune.
On Sunday I plan to interview Maxwell about his experiences being among the very first beta testers during the closed beta period of Sansar. Stay tuned for that interview!
