The Future Is Here And It's Virtual Reality Headsets With Googly Eyes
There are people who are convinced virtual reality is a major catalyst for ushering in the future that was prophesied in "WALL-E," and I doubt they feel much different after the official launch of the $600 Oculus Rift headset last week.
I got the chance to try out a beta version of the Rift a couple of years ago and after experiencing what it's like to fully immerse yourself in a game, I can understand why some casual Luddites think people might never leave their homes after discovering VR porn.
It's basically impossible to look cool when you're isolating yourself from the real world by placing a giant black rectangle over your face, but some people figured out an almost foolproof way to ensure you only look kind of dorky: googly eyes.
With the exception of open casket funerals, it's common knowledge googly eyes make everything better, and virtual reality headsets are no exception.
