Nissan Europe's "Chase the Thrill" takes virtual reality to yet another level by adding a treadmill to the mix. Users of the experience use Oculus Rift and a specially constructed treadmill to become a rollerblading android.

Says Jean-Baptise Burdin, creative director at Digital LBi, "It came out of discussions with TBWA for a 360 degree campaign for the Nissan Juke.

We wanted to work with Unit9 because of their experience in VR and their directors who understand both interactivity and storytelling--two skills which are hard to find combined."
