Rebuilding Jerry Seinfeld's Living Room for Oculus Rift in Blender


Rebuilding Jerry Seinfelds Living Room for Oculus Rift in Blender 3d news

Greg Miller is a big fan of Seinfeld and decided to recreate Jerry's living room so he could experience it through his new Oculus Rift.

Greg writes:

I've been a fan of Seinfeld for a long time. After purchasing the Oculus Rift I started imagining what my first project might be. I decided to pick a project that would gradually introduce me to Unity without being overly complex. I was not new to 3D modeling, however this would be my first project in Unity. I came up with the idea of recreating Jerry's apartment, in it's entirety for virtual reality. Television is virtual reality in some ways. We make believe that Jerry's place is actually a Manhattan studio and Monks Cafe is just down the street. We suspend the reality that his apartment is just a set in Hollywood, with tons of cameras and lighting dangling overhead. I thought it would be a novel virtual reality experience to take a place that only exists in Hollywood magic, and make it for the Oculus Rift as if it were real. Virtual Reality Virtual Reality.

Pancho Joshi shared a video that illustrates what the result looks like through an Oculus:

Very, very cool. I can imagine studios being interested in this kind of material to promote their series! Now I just need to get an Oculus :)

    People make these thing? Who are these people! And where do they get these VR devices! (sorry, couldn't resist)

      Oh yeah, and good job! Never thought of remaking favorite tv show sets, that would be fun. I should try it.

    So many details I never noticed, like the pipe running down the wall by the door. This model makes it more obvious how small his apartment was, too.
