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.”

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:

The Museum - which is truly amazing - often with many new exhibitions - is now free to own on Steam:

@RuneSR2  nice find mate, thanks.  I got the free Steam version today.  With the free dlc it was about 20Gb download so it did take a while.  I've only tried the offline portal so far since I'm kinda anti-social, lol!  Everything looks great with my oled Vive Pro (w/Etsy lens mod and Index controllers) at 200% SS.  I'll try this later with my lcd Quest 2 wireless at 120Hz w/Air Link.  It should be nice to be able to spin around 360 deg on my swivel gaming chair, lol!

 

Honestly this museum is going to take a lot of time to explore.  Plus, I think I've already had an LSD flashback from my late 1970's uni trips, lol!

The Museum is awesome - last year they held a conference, where some real persons worked at the reception and could guide you through the exhibitions. But I'm quite anti-social too - having to stand and talk to some dude wasn't my cup of tea, lol. Luckily there's the solitary offline option, which is the one I'm close to always using 🙂

 

The exhibitions aren't all permanent, interesting if we have to pay to visit some now that the app is free... Right now I think everything is free. The museum looks great with lcd - my Rift isn't set up for SteamVR anymore, I only use Index for SteamVR (but if a game supports native Oculus drivers, I can use CV1 for those).
