No 17: Intersteller

What better place to see a big budget blockbuster space movie like Intersteller than the National Air & Space Museum? In addition to a full size 70mm Imax theater it has a real space shuttle, a full scale model of the Ranger landing craft from the movie and an Oculus Rift VR exhibit of the film set.

I'm not sure which I enjoyed more - the VR or the Film. The film is ambitious... but not perhaps a bit longer than it needs to be and my belief wasn't quite suspended. The VR Exhibit was much better than expected, but could definitely have been longer.

So, two pictures today, one of the Ranger from the film and one of my three companions - Ron, Craig & Russ - in the world of VR.
