The social VR software allows up to six players to step inside Nickelodeon’s virtual world and participate in a number of activities. The experience was built using Unreal and Nvidia’s Flex particle system to help simulate Nickelodeon’s iconic green slime — which you can of course launch at other people in VR. Activities include ping pong and basketball, as well as art projects. Players outside VR can even use a spectator mode to fly a drone inside the virtual world with the other players. You can also watch Nickelodeon cartoons.
The experience comes from Nickelodeon’s Entertainment Lab, which has been exploring VR, AR and AI-driven experiences for kids. Nickelodeon also recently invested in Dreamscape Immersive — a startup building VR attractions enhanced with environmental effects — and they agreed to develop an experience together.
