Museum of Other Realities

Looks potentially great, I'm considering visiting the museum:

“What was once artwork experienced in the solitary confines of a universe built for one, at the MOR becomes a social phenomenon commented upon and shared by an entire community.”
UPLOADVR

“The MOR is an experience, not a game or a demo. It is designed like a real-world art museum, giving some of the best VR artists in the world a venue to show off all the amazing VR art they have been making for the last two years. I went into MOR with no expectations and came out with my mind completely blown. Everyone and anyone curious about VR needs to try this thing out."
FORBES

“And I was off again. But only because it was such a wonderful building, full of multi-dimensional madness and portals to impossible scenery.”

    It's quite good, feels like a real museum. Not sure $20 is going to attract a lot of visitors, but I'm keeping it. 
    Works with Index res 200% in 90 fps using my GTX 1080, so it's not the most demanding app.

    I disagree, I think that would greatly enhance the experience - and don't forget Polybius after you're done at the museum!  :D

    This app is getting better and better, because it keeps getting updates with new exhibitions and content - had a great time in there this evening.

    I'd love to participate, but the idio *cough!* the nice devs have just released a 21GB patch and with my slow connection no way I can get in 4 PM today CET. 

    Lessons to learn - you get everything ready a month (or at least 2 weeks) before you start the show - you do not patch the Museum like this when the festval already has started. 2c.

    Got into the Museum today, it's really great - some German guide contacted me, but I chickened out politely, didn't really feel like talking to people inside the museum. Instead the museum can still be visited offline, and I checked out several of the new exhibits. Many were great, but too many used 360 degree VR videos - also explaining the massive 21GB patch. When using Index res 200% those vids look like some leftovers from early GearVR, lol - really looks like less than 640x480 res. They should just have used nice 2D vids - but admitted, then the VR part does not exist anymore. 

    Seems like some DJ is playing in there right now - might check it out later - this DJ:

    Wow. Didn't know this existed until I read this. Gonna check it out.

    But yeah, lol @ the 10GB+ random patches. Sounds like a hoot.

    Did have some fun, and I guess the vids or ok - in fact may look better with CV1 due to SDE fooling our brains to perceive a more high-res experience, all the LCD subpixels aren't helping in those low-res vids, lol.

    I think the Icarus experience was the best so far - it's in one of rooms farthest away from the "Face the Art" entrance. (The room about gravity if I remember that correctly.) 

    Might skip the online VR Art MasterClass this morning :blush: - at least being a total novice when it comes to making VR art (and I don't plan on changing that), and the last thing I'd like is to sit in the front row of the online class when the teaching starts, lol - but it's here too:
