Description
At SXSW 2018, TheWaveVR re-created the Ditracted Globe nightclub scene from the film 'Ready Player One' as a promotional party. Several festival goers got to experience the nightclub firsthand, using HTC Vive virtual reality headsets. They were able to create their own avatar personas and dance along to 80's music, DJed by Tye Sheridan (who plays Wade Watts in the film). TheWaveVR then livestreamed the experience. This is a short clip of the video.
