I went to see a friend’s VR piece at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn. Then afterward some of us went out for beers.
Two very different experiences: Hanging out while experiencing an alternate sensory world, and then hanging out together in this sensory world.
I found myself wondering whether there could ever be a viable cross-over experience. Will we ever share a beer with friends in VR?
I’m not even sure at this point what such an experience would be like. But I am quite certain that we will recognize it when (or if) it ever happens.
