At the moment, big crowds aren’t a particurly good idea, so usual concerts might be difficult in the next weeks months. Perhaps it might be time to investigate whether VR is up to the task by now?
Had a look to see whether there are solutions out there to hold live events in virtual reality. And indeed, there are first things out in the wild:
I know that @gbevin has already performed in SecondLife - which might come close (with the possibilities available back then). Has anybody experimented with any of these VR performing solutions? Or are there other interesting ones out there or on the horizon? (E.g. I heard that Facebook wants to announce something new regarding virtual meetup places soonish. Even if I’m a little sceptic with everything Facebook related I still want to know what this will be )
Besides a new way to offer a remote audience a more “inside” and “together” feeling than via a flat screen, this might also be interesting for virtual practicing (or just jamming around together) rooms. Well, for more ambient stuff at least…
Do some of you already have VR headsets? (I have an old HTC Vive here and have pledged for a Pimax 8k-X about two years ago. It’s still not there, but getting closer now, probably April or Mai…).
For people who don’t have any VR headsets yet but consider it: The most well-rounded packages atm. are probably either the Oculus Quest (mobile or PC+cable based, supports inside-out tracking) or the Valve Index (PC+cable based, supports external Lightroom tracking) I think.
