• Watch What Happens When Some Awesome Older Folks Get to Try Out the Oculus Rift

    You’ve probably seen the multiple viral videos out there where young kids are introduced to technology from the 80’s, such as the SONY Walkman or the Nintendo Game Boy. Their reactions to the now-antiquated technology are always priceless. But in this case, it’s the opposite, as a group of elderly men and women are introduced to the tech of the future.

    The Oculus Rift is one cool piece of kit. It’s slated for a commercial launch next year, but you can purchase the developer version right now. One thing is for certain: if it’s successful, this is a “toy” that has the potential to change everything. Oculus Rift isn’t the first attempt at virtual reality that we’ve seen, but it is certainly the most refined, and it just may start a revolution. Will it reach an audience beyond gamers? Only time will tell.

    So it’s a perfect opportunity to find out what a handful of people who are nowhere near the target demographic think of this product, right? Of course! Now sit back, relax, and enjoy, as “Elders React to Technology.”

    And if you can’t get enough of that, be sure to treat yourself to “Elders React to Twerking” next.
