Right, so virtual reality DJing from your own collection I have just discovered could be a thing. Back end of 2017, a company called Entropi released the VR app to enable it…
This is the crazy bit. In second life, where I hung out as I wrote my paper on second life and spirituality as my placement, i went to discos. Amounted really to no more than boxy type people listening online to someone streaming. And you could press a button to make your character dance.
Second life is nothing compared to VR, still in it’s infancy.
Now, you’d be a fool to think that VR and young people aren’t going to be a thing. So as youthministers, that’s going to be the place where you have to go. But lets pull this together, and talk future. If I am right and part of my mission is to DJ and connect up there…and in my recent exploration of that the streaming is a thing…and one reason is that I realised that one great way of reaching young people is online and through media…then this is going to be a thing, People.
So i am calling it now… make fun of it if you will, but theres always something worth taking a risk on. This is going to be a future development.
Here’s a recorded ‘live’ dj set (20 mins)
Whether it ends up being this company, or another one, it will happen. So keep your eyes peeled.
I don’t think as yet it looks like there is the sense of lots of people in the room at the same time, but give it some time and they will be….
