Incredibly realistic virtual reality roller coaster simulation

This poor guy was trying out the Oculus Rift virtual reality roller coaster ride, which is incredibly realistic. Jacob, the victim, is terrified of rollercoasters, so his friends did what any good friends would do; they strapped him into the simulation.

It does make for quite an hilarious video, but it also demonstrates how realistic the stereoscopic 3D effects are. Oculus Rift isn’t available for purchase yet, but you can pre-order the development kit for $300.
