Blade Runner 2049: Memory Lab is a Free VR Experience

This free VR experience transports you to the world of Blade Runner 2049. Oculus Rift in partnership with Warner Bros are creating three different virtual reality experiences in conjunction with the Ryan Gosling-starring sci fi film released earlier this year. The first of the the three (Replicant Pursuit) launched last July. Created by Magnopus, Blade Runner 2049: Memory Lab is the second part: a single-player adventure and 25 minute free VR experience.

Somewhere between a game and a movie, Memory Lab indicates how advancing technology changes how stories are told in virtual reality and demonstrates how VR can be used for entertainment purposes.

The Oculus demo was filmed using the Microsoft Holographic capture rig and uses Oculus Touch controllers for Rift.
