The three young souls stood before the judges scared to death. They knew that their future could depend on what happened from this moment forward.
None of them really thought that they would get this far. The final round, the final cut.
As the only guy they let Thomas go first. Well that's what they told him. They really did it because he was a nervous wreck and wouldn’t make it
if they took him up on “Ladies First”. Anyway, on with the story.
As the judges slipped on their VR goggles they were quickly transported to a forest stripped bare by a harsh winter. Closer to the ground you could
see signs of life, the beginning of spring. Small green buds were starting to show on the smaller trees. Some bushes were already full of budding
flowers. To the left there is a small stream where a small herd of deer are either grazing on the bright green grass or drinking from the edges of
Hmmmm, there is something upstream. Let’s flip into binocular mode.
Further upstream it seemed that we were witnessing a dinner lesson. Two large brown bears would jump into the stream, which was much stronger where
they were. They would do this until they caught a fish. They would then release them. There were 3 cubs that would then jump in and repeat the
process. It was adorable!!
Still using the binocular mode, look off to the right. Far off on the mountain there was a momma mountain lion enjoying the sun while her two little
ones enjoyed a little freedom. They chased each other, jumped around on their mom, and acted like you would expect two siblings to act.
Removing the binocular mode they then received a message on their viewing screen, that if chosen this world could be completed when added as a
standard world within the VRWorld Association.
Martha then walked around handing out her colorful VR goggles to all of the judges.
Once everyone had their goggles in place Martha turned on her program. Everyone was standing at the base of "Le génie du mal", the Genius of Evil,
the "Lucifer of Liège”. They had NOT been expecting this.
As they walk forward they are amazed at the attention to detail. While looking at the statue a voice begins speaking in their ears:
“It might be easy to mistake the Lucifer of Liège for one of the saints that ring the front of the pulpit, where Peter, Paul, Hubert, and Lambert
reside. But the details reveal his true identity — the curved walls at his sides are bat wings, the apple at his feet has been bitten, his chained
toes are sharp like claws and small yet tell-tale horns emerge from beneath his hair.”
The program then began to give us a quick tour and history of the Cathedral of Saint Paul. It was a unique experience as many will never have the
chance to visit Liege Belgium.
Rose said that her program would work with Martha’s goggles so they could leave them on unless they would just like to switch them out for new ones.
Only one judge switched so Rose was ready quickly.
As her program began to play you were quickly transported to a haunted house. Soft whispers can be heard in the background along with light
scratching that seems to come from the walls. It sounds as if someone is right behind you but when you turn all you see are more cobwebs. The lights
flicker on and off. They barely cast enough light to navigate through the house. Scenes of graphic horror flash in strobe like fashion, making you
unsure which way to turn. But you have to pick, because something is coming up behind you fast, you can hear it!
Each person will have the possibility of different experiences as it is based on the paths you take within the house. I made the mistake of going
down the Hall of Dolls!
OK ATS, so you be the judge… Who has the best Virtual Reality???
