If you’re traveling through Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy Interational Airport in the next few months and have been curious about what all that fuss is about headsets offering viritual and mixed reality experiences, you’re in luck.
Periscape VR has opened a six-month pop-up shop with freestanding VR towers and 12 stations in the terminal to offer travelers a chance to test out the technolgy with 5-10 minute-long experiences costing $1 – $2 per minute.
The experiences are grouped into five categories and might offer a fun way to spend a few minutes while waiting for a flight.
Here’s the menu:
- First Time: theBlu: Whale Encounter, Reef Migration and Luminous Abyss
- Experience: Irrational Exuberance – A journey to imaginary worlds as a lone explorer in deep space.
- Create: MasterpieceVR: Shape your Creativity – Build tangible objects, colorful environments, and high-quality 3D models with a powerful VR sculpting & painting tool
- Play: Fruit Ninja and AudioShield: Tackle fruit from all angles or surf and interact with music in a physcial way.
- Social Cause: Notes on Blindness: Into Darkness – Based on John Hull’s sensory and psychological experience of blindness, the interactive experience uses binaural audio and real-time 3D animations to create a fully immersive journey through a “world beyond sight.”
If you give it a try let us know how it works and if it’s something we should nominate for Airport Amenity of the Week.
