A woman with an enormous, warped vagina stands over you, attempting to situate a pair of naked coeds just so on an overstuffed sectional.Their faces distort and sporadically disappear as they pleasure each other and themselves.Their movements are sometimes smooth, sometimes staccato, like a couple of gyrating marionettes on Ecstasy.They moan with pleasure and talk dirty to no one in particular, but their mouths don't move.The room is largely empty save for one of those shitty IKEA floor lamps, a frat-house couch and a handful of empty exercise equipment.
Like You Tube, Camsoda is banking on the promise of 360-degree video, live streaming and, yes, virtual reality, to usher in a new era of user-generated content. The hourlong performance was scheduled for a Wednesday afternoon.
Having checked the company's site for compatible devices, I was there, Samsung Gear VR in hand, ready to go.
I'd been able to play the video on my desktop, but, due to Oculus' closed-garden approach to content and Camsoda's use of You Tube's open source 360-degree player, it would have taken me nearly the entire hour to get it up and running.
Two weeks and a handful of emails back and forth with the Camsoda crew later, I was ready for a second try.
Instead of hacking my way into this immersive, interactive sex scene, I went the path of least resistance and grabbed a generic Google Cardboard from the office. I loaded the link on the site's VR page, pressed the Cardboard icon and slotted my phone into the headset.
