Of course someone created The Matrix's construct scene in VR

We have one word about the famous Matrix scene being refitted for Oculus Rift: Whoa! 

OK, we have a few more, but that’s a good starting point. There’s just something awe-inspiring about being in the same hollow, boundless white room where a debonair Laurence Fishburne introduces slack-jawed Keanu to computer-simulated reality. As Morpheus said, “Unfortuantely, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself,” and that’s exactly what this demo by Tipatat Chennavasin lets you do. 

VR film scene tourism is a trend we’re seeing more of recently, with adaptations letting fans step into unforgettable places from cinema and TV. VR is becoming this medium where fictional places from cinema and TV can live on, like Jerry’s apartment from "Seinfeld." But it’s also bringing impossible scenes into existence: works of animation like My Neighbor Totoro and Cowboy Bebop, and scenes that rely on totally dated special effects and Neo's inimitable cluelessness, like the Matrix Rift below.

Jack in here.
