Boiler Room and Google have announced VR dancefloors: Techno in Berlin, a new live-action, 360 "immersive music Virtual Reality experiment." The new 15-minute VR experience has been designed for Pixel, Google's first phone.

VR dancefloors will reportedly include interactive elements of installation art, music TV broadcast, computer game narratives and immersive theatre. Viewers can create a "choose your own adventure" experience and interact with different areas of the VR experience, including a dance floor and 150 of "Berlin's most dedicated ravers.".

"Boiler Room's MO has always centered around using the latest accessible technology to unite online audiences around real-life music moments. This is why VR excites us: it represents the next stage of immersive, interactive, online music experience," said Stephen Appleyard, the Chief Business Development Officer of Boiler Room in a statement.

The experience was filmed in an industrial area of Berlin and includes live music by Berlin musicians FJAAK.
