Love or hate him, today’s the day that The Donald officially becomes the President of the United States. Whether you will be celebrating inauguration, or otherwise, Wide Awake on Vive will allow you to step into the Oval Office and meet the President elect himself.
Wide Awake features the most photo-realistic human in VR today, allowing you to get up close and personal with Mr. Trump. Not only that, but developers MacInnes Scott have recreated the Oval Office down to the very last detail, so you can explore the space where America’s destiny has been shaped for the past 78 years, and where the new President will be based for the next four.
Available now on Vive’s official app store, Viveport, Wide Awake utilises MacInnes Scott’s proprietary digital human ‘maximum resolution’ replication system, using HTC Vive’s room scale and Epic’s Unreal engine to render the character and environment in real-time 3D. You will be able to walk around and with a torch, discover all the President’s hidden secrets by shining a light on them.
According to the developers at MacInnes Scott on Viveport: “VR is a new medium with the potential of being a movie or video game, a combination of both or something completely new,” says John MacInnes. “We see Trump In VR as art – a tableau vivant, in the American tradition of artists like Edward Hooper in painting, Gregory Crewdson and Cindy Sherman in photography. Unlike a painting and photography, you can interact with the art in virtual reality.”
