Oculus Rift Users Experience What Real Life Would Be Like With Lag

Frustrating, confusing, and dangerous. Pretty much par for the course.

If you had any doubts that experiencing lag in real life would suck even more than it does online, several brave Oculus Rift users agreed to experience simulated lag of up to three seconds while attempting to perform daily tasks as part of this ad for ume.net. Spoiler alert: it looks horrible.

Apparently lag IRL looks (and probably feels) like being drunk. If you’re debating investing in a Rift, then go ahead and use that as your justification: depending on your average alcohol consumption, you could actually save money in the long run. Although I suspect living life with lag would result in several costly hospital trips.
