Parallel Lives

In the 1990s a new technology came into our lives entitled Virtual Reality (VR)  offering great promise for the worlds of imagination and fantasy but never really panned out. As of the 2010 the technology was suitable and ready for commercial consumption and the market is abound with VR Glasses that finally can provide what was originally promises 25 years ago.

Wearing new generation of VR glasses envelops the user’s senses and creates an authentic crossover into another world.

At GeekPicNic there will be over 40 VR stations where visitors will be able to experience VR through a variety of content. This includes everything from galloping on a horse, rocketing into outer space, riding a crazy roller coaster to a trip through time, travelling through the cosmos, coasting through the human brain and body and an adventure at microscopic scale!
