Mr Robot releases virtual reality experience

The USA Network has released a virtual reality tie-in for season 2 of Mr Robot.

Season 2 of Mr Robot has been breaking the fourth wall. First with a blink-and-you'll-miss-it QR code from Elliot's journal in episode one and now by immersing fans in the Mr Robot universe using virtual reality.

The short Mr Robot VR film was written and directed by the one and only Sam Esmail and offers viewers a glimpse to a significant moment from Elliot's past.

USA Network's page recommends a VR headset, like Gear, Oculus or Vive, for optimal immersion. If you don't have access to a headset, the film can be viewed with any mobile device, cardboard or desktop. It also offers up guides to watching the 360 video on headsets, Android, iOS, Facebook 360 and YouTube 360.

Disappointingly, the video isn't officially available to Australians. However, you can access it by using a VPN or Smart DNS to mask your location.

If you're yet to check it out, there's loads to see and do over at the Mr Robot website. Not only are there puzzles to decipher (like the QR mystery above), but also featurettes, galleries and games like the Threes-eque Mr Robot 2048.

Mr Robot has made a name for itself portraying the most accurate representation of hacking and coding on television, so the use of emerging technologies is a natural and welcome fit.

Mr Robot kicked off season 2 with a double-episode feature and is fast-tracked every Thursday to Presto.
