It’s easy to forget the incredible.
I’m wearing the Oculus Rift. It has been awhile and I wanted to revisit the Tuscany and Titans of Space demos. Although I have played the demos multiple times before, I still get an emotional charge when I play them.
The Tuscany demo made me laugh when a lint / seedling startled me when it floated into view. The fireplace almost made me feel warm. The butterfly made me smile. I felt peace while staring at the fountain.
When comparing our sun with much larger stars, the Titans of Space demo instilled a sense of awe and majesty. As Yakko of the Animaniacs said, “It’s a great big universe and we’re all really puny.”
Watching these scenes and listening to the associated sounds and music, filled me with inspiration and wonder for our future.
What incredible future shall we create?
