Oculus Rift, as tested by a 90-year-old grandma

New, 8 comments

YouTube user Paul Rivot equipped his 90-year-old grandma with the Oculus Rift Tuscany demo and turned on a camera to record the results.

"Oh man, it's so real," Rivot's grandma says. After she asks if the images are actual photos from Tuscany, one of the video's other occupants explains they're 3D images made with a computer. Oculus Rift's Tuscany demo takes users through a virtual villa. You can watch the video above for almost four minutes of adorable and cliché grandma exclamations.

Earlier today, Polygon reported on a Mirror's Edge mod featuring Rift support. We had the chance to go hands-on with the Oculus Rift at GDC. You can read our impressions here, albeit with significantly less "holy mackerel."
