Another day, another PLOTT day out. Between the music and laughter and waterparks*, work does occasionally slip out. I know, I know, work – huh – what is it good for? We’ve always believed that a happy team produces the best work. How else could we create our epic cool brands and websites? But this post ain’t about that. This is about our day out. Our Grand day out.
We begin at the award-winning virtual reality experience, Otherworld. It really is an experience – they’ve gone to great lengths to make their location unique. It’s like you’re stepping aboard a spaceship – very cool and spartan. It’s the highest of high tech on the high street. The self-service bar was enough to impress us, frankly. Then it was time to step into the VR “pod”, gear up and enter the otherworld. Upon loading you find yourself in a cave, surrounded by avatars – with name tags, which was a nice touch – of your teammates. One then explores the world to find the games. Once chosen you enter a pod, again. But virtually. It’s really meta. Anarchic. Chaotic. Breathlessly hilarious.
While you’re in you can take in some culture, create some virtual art, walk a beach or a mountain. A wealth of intellectually nourishing and esoteric experiences are available. Or… we could just shoot each other.
