They did it. Those crazy bastards finally did. They transformed Netflix into a Virtual Video Ezy.
Why would you do this? Why?
This was the end result of a recent Netflix 'Hack Day' event, where Netflix gives its product development staff the day off from regular duties, to create something wild and experiment with new technology.
This guy. This guy took it too far. Reign us back in Netflix, the world is not ready for this. We can't go back, we should never go back. Please...
This 'hack' was created by Joey Cato, Adnan Abbas and Marco Caldeira and should be banished into a dimensional void where it is never seen or heard from again. It uses the HTC Vive.
Thankfully, Netflix had this to say:
As a reminder, while we think these hacks are very cool and fun, they may never become part of the Netflix product, internal infrastructure, or otherwise be used beyond Hack Day. That said, we wanted to share them with you to simply share the spirit of the event and our culture of innovation.
Alrighty then. Panic over.
