Walk inside the world of 'Spirited Away' in new virtual reality simulation
Every Hayao Miyazaki fan has at least once wished that they could jump inside the world of Spirited Away. Thanks to a new virtual reality simulator, now you can. The virtual recreation was made by Nick Pittom, and as you'll see from the side by side comparison shots, it's spot on.
The part of the Spirited Away world that has been recreated is the boiler room scene where Chihiro finds some creepy crawlers. Another innovative feature of the simulation is that you can experience the whole thing as Chihiro, and you're even able to see her body at times.
The way you can experience this fantastical world is by using the 3D gaming simulator Oculus Rift. To get a better idea of what the simulation looks like, check out the clip below. The simulation starts around 1:48.
