Publish date:

Fast Company covers the amazing new Marshmallow Laser Feast's VR headsets that users place over their heads while in the forest in order to see the enviornment in the wavelegnths and angles of view of certain forest creatures. As John Brownlee reports, "in addition to letting you see the forest through an animal's eyes, Marshmallow Laser Feast (MLF) also leverages binauraul sound design to put you in an animal's ears. Participants can even "feel" the sounds of the forest thanks to Subpac, a wearable subwoofer."

"In The Eyes Of The Animal" was created for the Abandon Normal Devices Festival, a roaming U.K. arts festival. The virtual reality outdoor sculpture is currently on display in Grizedale Forest, but with enough interest, Marshmallow Laser Feast hopes to share it with the rest of the world in the future.
