You never know what you’ll find at SXSW; you can even travel up the Wall of Westeros. Oculus Rift is offering a 4D experience that makes it feel like you’re taking Castle Black’s creaky old elevators up to the top of the wall. They immerse you by having a slightly shaky surface, 3D sounds and sights, and wind sweeping through the fake elevator. It sounds surreal, but Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones‘ Arya Stark) was definitely convinced. She apparently doesn’t like heights, and she panicked a bit (or a lot) while wearing the goggles. I would probably do the same.
See videos featuring Williams and what it’s like inside the experience after the break.
