Virtual reality has been "the next big thing" for some time now, but somehow has never quite fulfilled its potential. Now, technology is at last catching up with the ambitions of VR pioneers, offering an immersive experience for games and storytelling that could just change the way we experience media.
For our students who live in London or nearby, this is a chance to see the very latest in virtual reality at this free exhibition at BFI IMAX.
