I can't wait to get immersed in banging tons of video game characters.
Wait, I mean, uh... immersed in roller coasters.Wangstation 08/06/2013
I just got my Rift yesterday, and it seriously fucks with your brain. Just standing in a (virtual) room gives you an actual sense of space. The roller coaster demo gives you a genuine sense of movement, I was leaning into the turns and my brain actually believes what it's seeing is real. So all these exaggerated responses to the Rift? Yeah, most of them are probably genuine.
But also... VR ...uzimonkey 08/06/2013
Ahhh...The old "Take something that was frontpage a few days ago and turn it into a gif."

I actually have given this demo a go when they were showing off innovative new technology at work.
The demo is a roller-coaster going around a castle. The resolution was downright terrible (640x480) but the guy said that they were planning to upgrade to 1080p
I did actually feel weird whilst demoing this. I don't know if I would go as far as calling it motion sickness but I didn't feel great ...Esure101 08/06/2013
My guess is when the other guy clapped, there was a large girlish scream before it.MTL_RELLIK 08/06/2013

I know this seems stupid but I've been looking for that game for years! WHAT'S IT CALLED!?!?!?!?!Hyeboy12 08/06/2013
As silly as it may seem to some, his reaction could very well be real and not faked. I'm inclined to believe it is real given that he was drunk and didn't have as much inhibition as he would have otherwise.
Further, VR technology has been used to treat the fear of acrophobia since 1995 and the Oculus Rift's vast improvement over that decades-old ...tsudeki 08/06/2013
I won't be convinced until I put them on while playing a scene where I am falling, and it makes me actually feel like I am falling. You know, that deep pit of your stomach feeling when you just drop unexpectedly? I want it to feel like that. But I have a feeling it won't. Still totally awesome, but you still won't get the full experience of actually riding that virtual coaster.PillowTalk420 08/06/2013
Anyone watch jontron doing this on the co-operational podcast? That was hilarious.TheRaptorGaming 08/06/2013
