First movies talked. Then they came in color. Now they come in 3D and in IMAX. And the Oculus Rift might be ushering in a future filled with virtual reality headsets, and worlds more immersive and interactive than we've ever seen before.

This is Top Shelf, a weekly show from The Verge where we look at the past, present, and future of technology. Join David Pierce and guests as they look at how our movies will become like games, and our games will become like real life.
