Welcome to Live in VR! Our weekly roundup of everything that’s happening in headsets!
Lots to pick through this week. Bigscreen has yet more space porn for you rocket fans, but they’re also hosting our new VR podcast! Elsewhere, Oculus Venues returns with another live concert. Let’s dive in.
Rocket Lab: 9th Electron Launch – October 16th, 5pm PT + SpaceX Falcon 9 Launch: Starlink 1 – October 17th, 9am PT
It’s a big week for space! Following last week’s NASA launch, SpaceX steps up to the plate. Elon Musk is launching the Falcon 9 rocket, shooting around 60 satellites into space. Rocket Lab’s Electron rocket, meanwhile, will launch from New Zealand. Be sure to catch both in VR.
The VR Download Podcast – October 17th, 10:30am PT
Hey look, it’s us! Yup, the plan is for Bigscreen to start hosting our new weekly podcast in which we talk about VR… in VR. You can of course watch it via YouTube or check it out on Spotify on demand, but if you want to see me chattering away (who doesn’t?) inside VR this is your best bet.
Post Malone, Runaway Tour Live – October 18th 12:00am PT (October 17th 8PM ET)
Venues’ next stab at live concerts in VR is rocking its way to you straight from the PNC Arena, Raleigh. Post Malone’s headline set will be available to watch with others in VR. Hopefully it fares a little better than the Billie Eilish attempt from earlier this year.
