Here's How to See the Mr. Robot Virtual Reality Experience at Comic-Con
Are you ready to enter the world of Mr. Robot? You can delve into USA Network's Emmy-nominated show at this year's San Diego Comic-Con with the Mr. Robot Virtual Reality Experience, happening this Thursday.
On July 21, join the cast of Mr. Robot at San Diego's Petco Park for the premiere of the Mr. Robot Virtual Reality Experience, a first-of-its-kind VR simulcast stunt. The 12-minute VR experience was written and directed by Mr. Robot show creator, Sam Esmail, produced in partnership with Here Be Dragons, and presented on Chris Milk's Within platform. And believe us when we tell you -- you don't want to miss this one.
Doors to Petco Park open at 9 a.m. and the experience begins at 10:45 a.m. Here's what you need to do to participate:
Step 1: Get the Within app NOW at with.in. (VR content can be viewed on iPhone 5S devices and above, as well as most Android devices running 4.4 and above.)
Step 2: Open the Within app and download the Mr. Robot VR Experience in advance of the event.
Step 3: Arrive at the Home Gate Entrance of Petco Park at 100 Park Blvd. no later than 10 a.m. with the content already downloaded to be part of this historic Comic-Con exclusive event!
All attendees at Petco Park will receive custom Mr. Robot cardboard to watch the VR, and the first 2,500 fans will receive Mr. Robot branded headphones.
Can't make it to Comic-Con this Thursday? Simply follow steps 1 & 2 above, and join the co-viewing experience from wherever you are at 10:45 a.m. PST.
Immediately following the premiere, the content will disappear from the Within app.
You can also check out the VR Experience at Comic-Con at the Mr. Robot Repair Shop at 343 4th Ave. in downtown San Diego, where fans will enter an authentic replica of the Mr. Robot's computer store from the series, as well as the interior of Elliot’s apartment.
In addition, in partnership with Uber, fans will be able to request the Mr. Robot VR to come to them via the Uber app.
