Though 3D gaming has yet to catch on the way Sony and Nintendo had envisioned, that hasn’t dissuaded other companies from pushing the dimensional envelope. Oculus, makers of the soon-to-be-released Rift headset, have been blowing minds with their incredibly cool virtual reality tech, but none more tenderly than the mind of Paul Rivot’s awesome 90-year-old grandmother.
“Is it my eyes, or are the leaves blowing?” she asks as Paul, who works for Imagimind Studio, walks her through a demo set in Tuscany. "I'm amazed. I don't believe I'm seeing this."
Not a bad upsell for the Rift, which has already garnered loads of praise from journalists who have had some early hands-on (heads-on?) time with the device. Unfortunately, it's yet to get a release date or price point, though we're pretty sure they just found one very happy customer.
