Weta, Epic Games Create ‘The Hobbit’ CG Virtual Reality Experience

Epic Games and Peter Jackson’s Weta Digital are premiering a three-minute virtual reality experiment loosely based on Jackson’s film The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Wednesday at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
The story is set in the treasure hall where Bilbo meets the dragon Smaug in the film’s climax. For the VR experience, demoed on the Oculus Rift Crescent Bay prototype VR headset, the user has the point of view a burglar such as Bilbo, and comes face to face with Smaug.
