#259: Walk Through a Vincent van Gogh Painting with ‘The Night Cafe’

mac_cauleyThe Night Café is an amazingly surreal immersive VR experience of walking through a space that’s inspired by a painting by Vincent van Gogh. I speak with Mac Cauley about his inspiration and process to in creating The Night Café, which won both the Platinum and Community Choice awards in the experience category for the Oculus Mobile VR Jam 2015. It’s one of my favorite VR demos to show people in order to introduce them to VR because it really creates a sense of presence in a place that’s really only possible in VR. Mac talks about his design process for The Night Café (be sure to check out his two detailed behind-the-scenes blog posts #1 & #2), his experience of using Oculus Medium, as well as what he’s working on next.


The Night Café: An Immersive Tribute to Vincent van Gogh is available for free on the Gear VR store as well on the Oculus Share website.
