    Thanks for another great podcast! I was at SVVR Conf. and presenting VR CAMP at Burning Man, 2015. All the VR goggles will be covered in paper mache art masks to create actors in the “Carny Side Show” in a decorated tent with computer cabinets that will be deocrated as well. You will feel more like you are at an art show and less that you are at a VR convention. After all, it’s Burning Man. So imagine the VR viewer is the cary side show actor with their costume mask on. We need content and we ARE bringing out BURN2 in a stand-alone sim (Cannot bring out SL without internet-boo hoo). We are bringing out machinima as well. I’m pretty excited about this project! Learn more here and donate to our campaign if you would like. We just need three really big contributions to make this happen and bring VR to Black Rock City and its 70,000 burners. Let’s make it happen together! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/burning-man-vr-camp#/story
