If ever you were looking for a sign that virtual reality has hit the big time, this is it.
Developer Greg Miller has taken the time to cobble together a Seinfeld-themed “just-for-fun project” for the popular Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. The fruits of his efforts: Jerry’s Place, a three-dimensional rendering of Seinfeld’s TV apartment.
A few things you may notice in the below video: We finally get to see the front wall of Jerry’s apartment (the video’s tour guide explains that one of the episodes of the show actually revealed the wall briefly), and there’s a copy of TIME on Jerry’s coffee table. The bookshelf on the back wall is amazingly detailed, as well.
Jerry’s Place is available as a free download for Windows, Mac and Linux, though you’ll need the $300 Oculus Rift development kit to immerse yourself in the mind-bending experience of touring the apartment belonging to a character in a TV show that hasn’t been on the air for 16 years. If you’re willing to pay $300 for that, I’d like to go out drinking with you sometime. You sound fun!
Here’s the video — it contains some not-safe-for-work language, so either mute it, wear headphones or take your employment status into your own hands:
