Burning Man Is Getting Its First Virtual Reality Tent


If actually being somewhere that resembles a Mad Max-style wasteland wasn't enough, virtual reality will make its debut at Burning Man this year, turning the inside of a two tents into trippy 3D canvases.

Two VR enthusiasts, Shannon Norrell and Dara Bonakdar, are bringing VR to Black Rock Desert this year, setting up a total of 16 VR viewing stations alongside a 30x20 projected screen. They're calling it VRCamp, and users will be able to check out the HTC Vive and Google's 3D painting app called Tilt Brush. Re/code reports there will also be motion capture suits linked to giant projections of Godzilla and animated robots that will dance along with the crowd.
