Here's our first look at Spielberg's 'Ready Player One' movie

Here's our first look at Spielberg's 'Ready Player One' movie

What's most interesting about this image is how down-to-Earth everything seems. The VR headset Watts is using does not look too far off from what we are seeing today -- in particular, it seems reminiscent of the Windows-powered headsets currently in the works. And we have also seen haptic gloves, like those from Manus, that give us another layer of interaction with virtual worlds. Hopefully at Comic-Con we will also get a glimpse at how Spielberg will visualize the VR world of the OASIS.

The photo, which shows off Watts' private hideout in an old van, packs in plenty of Easter Eggs. There's a classic He-Man lunchbox on the right side, along with some Garbage Pail Kids and Garfield stickers. The newspaper on the left celebrates the launch of the OASIS, as well as the fact that 21 VR headsets had been sold by then. And, it's worth noting that Watt's outfit looks like almost like a character from Back to the Future.
