'VRnaut' spends 48 hours awake in VR on livestream

Virtually shuns our reality.

Product: HTC Vive | Manufacturer: 
 
Ever wanted to spend 48 hours in Virtual Reality?

Thorsten S Wiedemann is currently a couple of hours into a 48 hour trip into the Matrix at the Game Science Center Berlin and at the time of writing he's currently trying to get maximum air by ski-jumping and you can watch him via the live-stream.

It's a wonderfully surreal experience as the games and universes change and you watch a man in a pink onesie bouncing around the contained space in total isolation from the staff and museum guests around him.

It's all in the name of art, of course:

"DISCONNECTED is a performance in the year of Big VR. Simultaneous with DISCONNECTED at the Game Science Center in Berlin from January 8-10, the major players in Virtual Reality will reveal prices, release dates and the final looks of their long-awaited products at CES in Las Vegas. There is no better time to dis/connect. Thorsten S. Wiedemann will be a VRNaut, leaving behind reality for the radical duration of 48 hours. No human being has ever spent such a long time in computer generated Virtual Reality without sleep."


VRNaut. I refer to myself as the king of VR mountain, but Thorsten has me beat for cool job titles. Of course, he won't know this for 48 hours as he's totally substituting the real world for these virtual realities for the next two days, going so far as to wear a set of noise cancelling headphones and shunning sleep for the duration of the experiment.

So, watch along. It's bound to get more interesting as the stream goes on and sleep deprivation sets in.

Remember to use your virtual reality tech sensibly, kids.
