Brain Break: Watch This Kid's Virtual Reality Wipeout
As if strapping a virtual reality headset to your face isn’t dorky enough, it could have you falling flat on your face, too.
At least that’s what happened to this poor kid. She gave a fancy $799 pair of HTC Vive VR goggles a spin, pawed her way around like a lost mole in the dark, and -- whoops-a-daisy -- she biffed. Hard.
Lucky girl, someone posted the footage of her eating it on Imgur. A day later the funny clip made the rounds on Reddit, where a kind soul begged the critical question: “OUCH! Is the Vive okay?!?!” Thanks to the little human cushion, it appears to be. But we’re not so sure about the kid. She got a wicked harsh taste of reality -- also known as the floor.
