Casual old JaffaLast Friday we were casually strolling along the pier at old Jaffa. It was getting dark and drizzling weather made people find a closest cover. Despite the weather we enjoyed the views and watched late fishermen coming back from the sea.
Then, a nicely dressed guy approached us and asked: "Do you want to fight zombies"?
InvitationAs a zombie movies lover, I found it interesting, though assuming the circumstances the invitation sounded at least strange. There some happy voices behind his back, and a person with a cup of coffee emerged form the building. So we decided to plunge in!
Unexplored playgroundInside we found a playground for virtual reality lovers. There were several options, while I followed the host's advice to try a "zombies staff". To fully experience the fusion into virtual reality, I put on a virtual reality glasses.
Usually, I wear spectacles therefore I was a bit sceptic about the outcome. Nevertheless, with a headset on I felt pretty comfortable and it didn't bother me much!
When Hi-Fi headphones were added, in a fraction of a second I got submerged in a completely new world where I was at the deserted construction facility full of zombies.
The new realityFrom that point, my imagination has gone wild! WHOOOO! I was in the middle of classical zombie scene! WOW!
Shadows mingling in the corners of a factory halls, weird whistling, someone is roaring, and only a flash-light on my pistol is my best friend in this situation!
The whole experience took about 5-7 minutes, while clothes that I wore got wet! I think, my pulse was much above the average and the breathe pace just sky-rocketed!
As a result, I took out dozens of zombies!!!
My sergeant at the boot camp would be proud of me!
I had so much fun! The toy-pistol weighted as a real one and the ambience was skillfully copied from the best zombie movies.
I think, I got to love the virtual reality games!
Special thanks to Vortex - Enter the game, for that super cool experience!
