My Neighbor Totoro In Virtual Reality 45

An anonymous reader writes "Nick Pitton, the developer behind the Spirited Away Boiler Room VR experience, has released his second project: the bus stop scene from Studio Ghibli's famous movie My Neighbor Totoro, once again in virtual reality for the Oculus Rift. Pittom 'hand-painted' the textures in Photoshop to recreated the painted-background feel of the movie. For the characters (Totoro and the Catbus) he used a cel-shaded approached to approximate the animated look from the movie. For his next project, he plans to recreate the ship and characters from the acclaimed anime Cowboy Bebop."

    Thank you, anonymous NRA supporter, for turning a discussion of a touching children's movie into a discussion about murder, rape, and assaulting the elderly. Because assaulting the elderly is precisely the kind of thing I associate with the sensitive, life-affirming films of Studio Ghibli and director Hayao Miyazaki. In fact, I think when you look closely, assaulting the elderly is the central message of Totoro.

    Your anonymous tirade has shown us all the way. I think you are exactly the type of rational, not-at-all-insane person we want to help us all as a society to make informed decisions about how best to reduce gun violence and the slaughter of children. If this obviously well adjusted person says gun control doesn't work, let's all listen to him and everyone else who is fighting to keep those Glocks, AR-15 assault rifles and other implements of death on our streets!

    The lag is to blame on the video recording.

    The demo itself, just as the earlier Spirited Away VR demo, is very responsive.

The best defense against logic is ignorance.
