'Enter the Duat', An immersive VR Experience

Montreal-based startup The Phenomena has created an immersive virtual experience based on the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Using groundbreaking wearable haptics systems created by Ian Hattwick, participants encounter Egyptian gods as they physically advance via a treadmill through multiple realms. This is a full body immersive experience for friends and families.

The experience is being shown at the Galeries Rive Nord near Montréal through March 10, 2019. Watch the CTV News Montreal Story
