ok peeps. Mac OS AltspaceVR BRC works. https://altvr.com/altspacevr-mac/ Download it, yes you have to click through the Apple warnings. create your avatar and take the short tutorial. But it’s pretty cool. I did a solo run through and landed in Center camp then made my walk, the one I do after acclimating at camp and I took in the Keyhole, went up to the platform in First Camp, checked our Tech Camp and the ARTery — Artery needs a sign! Then I went out and hung at the Man base, met a person and had a conversation then friended them, ended up in some weird meditation camp where people were talking about Facebook because.. tech.. I don’t have goggles yet but it’s interesting and really easy to navigate because it’s Black Rock City. The sun set and it popped just like the playa. There’s a ton of weird shit to check out and I haven’t seen any of it. Get in here and let’s hang out. I’m not going to post too much until you get out there.. but here are some midday and sunset shots.

see if you can find the entrance to the hidden speakeasy inDisorient- it’s really cool.

Rebecca Throne
It is great!

Wete you able to teleport? I couldn’t get that to work. Just walk/run.

John Mosbaugh
teleport you click and it opens up a modal where you teleport. You can walk through just about anything I think. Also set Fly in settings to on and use Shift to go faster. I’m pre-Oculus obviously. 🙂

Neonbunny Lapine
John Mosbaugh I disvovered flying and running. But it said left mouse click to teleport, that does nothing. Did discover space opens some quick controls including mute though.

Lindsay Adams
Neonbunny Lapine oooohh, that’s good to know about the space bar. I did find today that cmd-shift-T toggles your mute status.

Neonbunny Lapine
Lindsay Adams Does left clicking to teleport work for you?

There was a portal and we went in…once we got inside it looked like Everywhere plaza and had all these signs.

Rad! Glad to run into you, John Mosbaugh! LMK if you figure out where the selfies are stored.

John Mosbaugh
I put some pics up in a post on my wall here. Selfies were challenging 😉

Frog Gilmore

Beth Klem

Sadly my computer can’t handle going fun places. I got to the Black Hole Bar twice but then my system craps out. Edit: it’s funny because I’m still using the Mac BM gave me when I left the office. 😜

John Mosbaugh
Yea I was having some issues but luckily was able to stick around for quite a while. If I did anything with bluetooth like adjust my air pods it would crash.

Frog Gilmore
dang. I actually had my laptop sitting on an icepack to help
