‘Silicon Valley’ VR Experience Lets You Explore Erlich Bachman’s Incubator, Now on Rift & Vive

VR headset users now have a chance to walk into an interactive version of HBO’s Silicon Valley house. The Palo Alto home, which is owned by the series’ eccentric startup guru Erlich Bachman (T.J. Miller), was lovingly recreated in VR, replete with ‘always blue’ ball, foosball, and yes, even a bong.

Update (05/12/18): First released on Viveport, for HTC Vive, the free ‘Silicon Valley: Inside the Hacker Hostel’ experience is now available on Oculus Rift for US-based users. The release on Rift precedes the show’s season finale, coming May 13th.
