VR Wormholes GTC 2018 Attendee into the World of ‘Ready Player One’

This year’s GTC VR Village featured a gaming experience in which three attendees in separate rooms equipped with VR gear joined forces to “escape” from Aech’s Basement, one of the film’s virtual settings. Powered by NVIDIA’s Holodeck collaboration platform, the “Ready Player One Escape Room” presented players with a straightforward task: Identify objects that could be picked up, use them to solve a series of puzzles, and “escape” from the basement within 10 minutes. Easier said than done: this would be a challenge. A fun one.
