Character Mirror – Be the character from David OReilly’s ‘The External World’

Created for an installation in conjunction with the 10th Anniversary Pictoplasma Festival in Berlin, this is an app/toy/thing David OReilly made for the Oculus Rift with a little help from  Damien Di Fede. The experiment allows you to see your reflection as a virtual character from his multi-award winning short, The External World (below). There is no keyboard or mouse interaction - command+Q to quit. Of course, you will need Oculus Rift to enjoy it.

There’s a lot of different characters from various projects I’ve done over the years, they switch at random intervals and are in random order. Almost all had to be re-rigged, an exhausting process, but if there's enough interest I may add more in the future.
