The art of dying in virtual reality

The most scary thing I have ever tried in virtual reality was a ski jump. Whauw, that felt so real.

Virtual reality is an amazing tool for exploring your phobias, but the technology can also be used for many other things. The hyper focus of the VR headsets can be very useful for exploring meditation and altered states of consciousness. So I was very curious when Makropol invited me to experience their virtual reality installation Doom Room: a trip through the moment of death and a tour of the afterlife hallucinations.

So, was it a cosmic experience or what? Well: I have written about the virtual reality ceremony in Weekendavisen today. The experience is open for the public this weekend and the next at the Chateau motel nightclub.
