Reggie Watts was at Sundance showing off his first 360-degree video VR experience called Waves, which is a surreal trip into his imagination. It’s one of the most quirky and entertaining 360 videos I’ve seen, and could be described as a dream within a dream that’s jam packed with special effects, music, philosophy, and humor. It turns out that Reggie is a huge VR geek who first tried out Dactyl Nightmare in the mid-90s, and has been fascinated VR ever since. I was able to catch up with Reggie at the Sundance New Frontier lounge to learn about his journey into VR and where he’d like to go next. You can watch Waves on Milk VR’s Sundance channel until Feb. 12, and then it’ll likely be available through WEVR.
