Virtual Reality Experience!
Yesterday evening Liz and Amy & Sarah surprised us by driving us to a "mystery event" which they wouldn't tell us anything about. It turns out it was a new kind of theater at Westfield, Century City. There are small rooms where six people at a time strap on electronic sensors for a virtual reality experience. There are sensors for hands and feet, and a backpack of electronics, and then there is a VR headset. It was an astounding thing to experience a world in 360 degrees all around us! We walked through a huge undergound temple, and then narrow passageways, and stood on the edge of of a 5 story precipice that was so scary we didn't dare get too close to it even though we knew it was just an illusion! The finale was a ride in a runaway ore car in a mine that launched us into space, but we were rescued by a seaplane! Crazy, really! What a an amazing experience! Here Amy and Liz and Kathy are shown with some of the equipment they have to wear for the performance.
