October 2019 - Two Bit Circus - Installation for X-Prize 2019

This was an experience for attendees of X-Prize, 2019. Guests were given an Oculus Quest VR headset where they saw themselves leaping off the top of a skyscraper. In reality, they were rigged up onto a tether and pushed off a stage. The tether then suspended the guests above a fan blowing air past them as they saw themselves diving down to the city streets below. The guest lands in a net just before hitting the ground. I wrote the skydiving game software in Unity, and worked with Eric Gradman to make sure the game communicated correctly with show control software.
