About

See and feel what it’s like to be one of the most essential building blocks of carbon-based life: a tree. This haptically enhanced virtual reality experience allows you to become a seed that is planted and grows into a full-sized tree in a majestic rain forest. With your arms as the branches and your body as the trunk, you experience the tree’s growth from a seedling to its fullest form, taking on its role in the forest and witnessing its fate firsthand.
