'X-Men' VR experience coming to Comic-Con

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Comic-Con attendees will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to enter the mind of Professor X. Fox has created an "X-Men"-themed virtual reality stunt especially for the pop-culture convention, which kicks off Thursday in San Diego. The interactive experience uses the Oculus Rift VR headset to simulate the fictional Cerebro technology used to track down mutants by the character portrayed by Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy in the "X-Men" films. The technology is not yet available to consumers. The 360-degree, 90-second virtual adventure will take place on the Comic-Con show floor inside Fox's booth. Attendees will sit in a replica of Professor X's wheelchair and virtually hunt mutants in the San Diego Convention Center. Fox is using the VR stunt to promote the Blu-ray release of "X-Men: Days of Future Past."
