Want to feel what it's like to be inside Hall H? Maybe you weren't able to attend this year, or you just want to relive that feeling over and over and over again? Not to fear, we have just the thing.

We tried something new this year - we created binaural (3D) audio recordings to fully immerse yourself inside Hall H. These audio recordings are best meant to be listened to with headphones. So sit back, dim the lights, close your eyes and travel back into Hall H. Or listen to the recordings while watching the POV video. It's a great SDCC experience that we can now bring you wherever you are.
