Pick of the Day: Astro Port

Today’s Pick of the Day is Astro Port, by Sansar user Mold3D. The experience is a futuristic spaceport, with posters advertising travel to other planets, and a passageway leading to an interactive ball-toss game. (Unfortunately, you do have to have a VR headset with hand controllers to be able to pick up and toss the balls. Desktop users do not yet have this functionality, but Linden Lab has said that they are working towards feature parity between VR and non-VR platforms.)

Here’s the video of me in a spacesuit, wandering around the Astro Port. By pressing the right thumbstick on the Oculus Touch hand controllers, I can switch from third-person mode (you can see my avatar) to first-person mode (you see from my avatar’s viewpoint) and back. I am in third-person mode when walking around the spaceport, then I switch to first-person mode when I pick up the pink neon ball, then I switch back to third-person mode to throw the ball. Cool! (My aim is terrible!)
