90-year-old grandmother gets her eyeballs on an Oculus Rift VR set.

And just like that, the whole planet became gamer. (Oculus Rift, PC, Tech)

This is far less gimmicky than all those Kinect/Move/Wii motion controls. This is what can actually make a huge difference in not only game play but also the depth of player's immersion levels.

I am very optimistic about this technology and I hope that it won't cost a fortune and that developers will actually support this tech including the platform creators such as Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo.

This seems like the next logical step in the gaming world.

I so wanted to get the Sony Personal 3D Viewer but it lacks the features the Oculus Rift already supports plus, the price is a lot more than I am willing to pay for.

I really, really hope Sony, MS and Nintendo will support Oculus Rift! Imaging playing our favorite games INSIDE that game world... *dreams away*

I would be excited to be that old and live up to this technology. I hope to see 3d holograms some day....space travel is way after my ass is gonna die...oh well

I think you mean space travel was before your time.

At least for me. The 70's were the space age. To bad its over now.

Nice tech and much better A.I would exist nowis the government stopped wasting so much damn cash on wars, and god knows what else they do on black projects and the crap that goes on in Area 51.

Tech and medicine should be far more advanced, idiotic fools who run countries.

So I guess Kotaku just trolls Reddit for material.

Anyway, cool vid. Can't wait to try one out for myself. Don't know if I'll buy one (highly doubt it), but I do want to try one. The dev units are $300, which isn't bad for a dev unit, but I don't have the extra cash right now. But I could also use it as a tax write off for school... so maybe.

The grandmother's reaction made me smile. Something about old folks enjoying and being amazed by the wonders of modern tech.

@GreenRanger
I know it was joke. Even got a chuckle out of it. The Reaction from some on here to your joke tho made me flat out laugh. Regardless, that's awesome for grandma there.
...geez, so many sensitive fairies these days. So easily offended of things not said upon them.

every time i see some old people watched and be amazed by the current generation of technology and we view as normal like touch screens and 3d graphics. i always picture my self an old man being amazed as what the future has in store for the future of gaming and movie cinema. for that old gal to stuck in her chair and then be flying or walking in an unknown world created by us, gives me some feels. damn im getting to old for this shit. haha
