  • - Time at this point feels

  • like a concept, only a number.

  • Hi, for the next week, I'm gonna be eating, sleeping,

  • working, and playing in Virtual Reality.

  • Starting now.

  • So you may have heard about Virtual Reality.

  • It sort of looks like a giant toaster

  • strapped to your head right now.

  • But I truly believe this technology

  • will change everything about the way we operate.

  • So I'm inquiring if one can remain healthy,

  • make new friends, be productive,

  • and have fun in the matrix.

  • Here's how I'll be doing it:

  • I'll shower like this, work like this,

  • exercise like this, and sleep like this.

  • Virtual Reality is like standing in your living room

  • and going to a new place.

  • Pass-through is being in Virtual Reality

  • but seeing a low-quality image of your room.

  • I can take five seconds to switch headsets.

  • I've also blacked out all my windows

  • so I can't see day or night pass.

  • This is quite possibly the dumbest thing I've ever done,

  • but welcome to a week in the future.

  • (ambient music)

  • Day one has being trying to get used

  • to my new schedule in Virtual Reality.

  • Even the simple act of grabbing my coffee

  • on the desk, is a little bit difficult.

  • Oh, shoot, dang it! (laughs)

  • I just spilled coffee.

  • And after keeping it under wraps for many weeks,

  • I finally announced my experiment,

  • and it was received with criticism and encouragement.

  • And having a 24/7 livestream,

  • I'm not used to having eyes on me all the time.

  • But what I found was solitude,

  • specifically in the African Savannah.

  • This headset allows anyone to create their own environment.

  • If one is feeling stressed,

  • they can load into a natural environment

  • for 10 minutes and relax.

  • If one is feeling energetic,

  • they can expel energy in a fitness game.

  • These are like the new rules

  • to this reality I've thrown myself in.

  • Everything is in the headset.

  • (echoing roar)

  • So sleeping last night was actually

  • a lot more comfortable than I thought it would be.

  • I loaded up a Netflix app in the Oculus Go

  • and I could basically create a virtual theater

  • as I drifted off to sleep.

  • And now, I'm pretty much just continuing what I normally do.

  • Working out.

  • Then eating breakfast, and going to work.

  • I think we just hit the hour, the 20 hour mark.

  • Kggamer64 says, Love what you're doing here,

  • but don't you think the challenge would be more effective

  • if you couldn't see the real world?

  • In the future, I believe Virtual and Augmented Reality

  • will be one and the same,

  • like you'll have a pair of very compact glasses,

  • like Warby Parker glasses,

  • and you'll just be able to double tap

  • and go into Virtual Reality and you'll be able to double tap

  • and overlay Augmented Reality onto your reality.

  • So what I'm attempting to do here

  • is just kind of simulate what I believe

  • the future of VR and AR will be.

  • So today, I'm attempting to be a little more social.

  • I'm jumping into an app called Altspace,

  • which is like a social media platform in VR.

  • So people can create events for basically anything.

  • There's movie screenings, concerts,

  • and one that piques my interest, is a meditation circle

  • that happens every Thursday and Monday.

  • - [Meditation Leader] So my name is Jeremy,

  • and I'm in Boulder, Colorado.

  • - [Jak] Hey everyone, my name is Jak.

  • I'm in Atlanta, Georgia.

  • - [Phill] Hey, I'm Phill, from Germany.

  • - [Jane] My name is Jane and I'm from Massachusetts.

  • - [Gabbi] Gabbi, I'm from Canandaigua, New York.

  • - [Jeremy] So let's begin by just slowly closing our eyes

  • and taking three deep breaths.

  • I instruct to take your breaths

  • in through your nose and out through your mouth.

  • I want you to picture that you're

  • floating safely above the Earth,

  • at about the distance of the International Space Station,

  • and you can see Earth floating down below you

  • - [Meditation Member] I thought the Earth was flat.

  • - [Jeremy] Please, please, keep yourself muted,

  • or we're gonna have to move you out.

  • Notice how fragile it looks,

  • notice that you can't see any borders or boundaries.

  • - [Jak] So there's something really interesting

  • about being mindful in a room full

  • of other people that are across the world.

  • I mean, this technology gives someone the chance

  • to take a break from work for 15 minutes

  • or join a party and watch a SpaceX launch,

  • which is what I did today.

  • - [Party Goer] Oh, yeah, look at that.

  • - [Jak] (laughs) That's cool.

  • - [Party Goer] Dead center, it's like (inaudible)

  • (ambient music)

  • So I almost feel like I'm in my own

  • 500 square foot spaceship, and I'm really missing Earth,

  • I'm missing nature.

  • And now I wanna explore where I can go in this spaceship.

  • So some friends of mine are showing me

  • some different worlds in a game called VRChat.

  • One minute, you can be flying across space,

  • and the next, you can be talking about the implications

  • of technology while driving through a train.

  • - [Gamer] The biggest concerns I have for the future of VR

  • are the implications of privacy and connection.

  • If every single movement of yours

  • can be quantified and tracked and recorded

  • for research, for marketing, whatever, you know.

  • Obviously, there are people who get

  • really paranoid about this.

  • I just come at it from the perspective

  • of, you know, any new technology

  • will inevitably be abused by special interests.

  • - [Jak] In terms of body, like physical, I'm feeling fine.

  • I was worried about my eyes yesterday,

  • because I was feeling a slight burning,

  • but after last night and sleeping,

  • there's no burning anymore, which is nice.

  • So the monotony is kind of getting to me.

  • I've been driving a train for the past few hours.

  • There's also a movie screening tonight, which should be fun.

  • Time, at this point, feels like a concept, only a number.

  • Not seeing the sun set or rise,

  • I've taken to games like Skyrim to experience the night.

  • Also, my virtual fish needs food.

  • I had a restful sleep last night

  • and woke up much later today,

  • but I pulled out a small rowing machine,

  • loaded up a beach environment,

  • and rowed my thoughts away.

  • I then calmed my mind in the hills of China,

  • and jumped into a virtual office to answer

  • emails while the sun rose above the horizon.

  • The ability for VR to have the user

  • at one point battling a dragon,

  • and at the next, experiencing a simulation of blindness.

  • - [Simulation Narrator] Sitting in the park

  • with the children, I hear the footsteps

  • of people walking past me.

  • A panorama of music and information.

  • - [Kid In Simulation] Daddy, daddy!

  • - [Jak] VR is stepping into the shoes of someone else,

  • or driving a spaceship

  • and talking with friends. - [Friend] Okay, here's my

  • question Jak, how do you pay for the incense?

  • Was it with change or would you say in cents? (laughs)

  • - [Jak] So, there are

  • these two developers in California

  • that have created a robot

  • that lives in their living room.

  • - [Male Developer] That is so cool.

  • - [Female Developer] You can buy Gonzo treats,

  • but it costs $5, so it's a lot.

  • But it's for his health and safety.

  • - [Jak] This is the most meta thing I've ever experienced.

  • I'm experiencing frequent déjà vus.

  • I'm experiencing frequent déjà vus.

  • It's essentially like I've momentary recognition,

  • momentary points where I feel like I've done here before.

  • It's all very strange, it's all very jumbled together.

  • - [Woman] (inaudible) is using whole ones, too.

  • He has access to a wide range.

  • - [Jak] I found it's very easy

  • to find your tribe,

  • to make friends,

  • to communicate with others

  • through the virtual landscape.

  • Where it's no longer through a digital window,

  • no longer through a screen or a phone,

  • but actually being there with them.

  • And that to me, is what VR is.

  • Connection.

  • (overlapping voices)

  • I now dream in Virtual Reality.

  • I go through storylines,

  • and see VR menus and situations.

  • I then wake up still inside the headset.

  • It's a very strange experience.

  • And what's really interesting about VR to me

  • is that this is a completely new medium for expression.

  • You know, before, we would have a canvas,

  • and we could have amazing painters.

  • Picasso, Dali, and now we have amazing artists

  • that are now able to paint their dreams,

  • paint their ideas into a 3D world.

  • But hold up, before one can create,

  • they must get inspiration, and being in a headset,

  • being bound to the digital,

  • I have found no inspiration to create.

  • So I'm going home to Mother Earth.

  • Google Earth VR is one of the most

  • amazing experiences in Virtual Reality.

  • (inspirational music)

  • And short of actually smelling the air around me,

  • I felt like I was standing outside.

  • (jazz music)

  • Imagine how much more compelling learning will be

  • when we have tools like this for students across the world.

  • The future is bright.

  • - [Chris Milk] You lose the ability to show people

  • exactly what you want them to see,

  • but you allow them to be within the world,

  • and that's really different than

  • any other medium that we've had before.

  • It is a medium of human experience.

  • - [Rocky] You ready for this?

  • Let's get up, kid, get some training.

  • - [Jak] This morning I trained with the Italian Stallion.

  • Boxed for the championship title.

  • And won.

  • I feel I've successfully used this technology

  • as an addition, rather than an escape, from my life.

  • I'm gonna hold which one I think.

  • This guy, yes.

  • And I wanna learn about the future of creative technology

  • with the next generation,

  • so I'm calling up a teacher here in Georgia.

  • - [Carrie] I think what's interesting about game design

  • is that it's a computer science class.

  • For me, my focus, I really do want it to be on the

  • creation side and the artistic pieces,

  • because making games and making VR,

  • it's not just about the hard code.

  • Like, there's so many skills that are involved.

  • Things that they actually wanna do and spend time on.

  • So we'll see.

  • (indistinct chatter)

  • - [Avatar In Black Shirt] He's not the first,

  • he's not gonna be the last.

  • - [Commentator] He probably doesn't have eyeballs anymore

  • because they've melted.

  • - [Jak] I am ready to get out of this headset.

  • For the last 8 hours,

  • I'm jumping in one of the most boring VR games.

  • - [Penn Jillette] Desert Bus.

  • 360 miles from Tucson, Arizona
