Old people react to the HTC Vive

How do you think you will react, or how did you react, the first time you had a virtual reality experience like the one possible with HTC Vive? Is it impressive to all ages? Fine Brothers Entertainment have put together a video showing the reaction of half a dozen elder people to the HTC Vive. Their reaction is in fact very similar to most people I think, they just feel more comfortable to express their amazement! It’s wonderful to see such honest reactions.

Playstation VR? Oculus Rift? HTC Vive? HoloLens? If you are a Playstation gamer get the Playstation VR but if you are a PC gamer you are in the right place and you have choices so read on! Let’s start with Microsoft HoloLens.

It’s not VR it’s MR (mixed reality). Will you be able to play games? Yes. Can you play Elite Dangerous? No! Will you want hololens? YES but for different reasons than the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.
