Oculus Rift modified to show what life would be like with lag

By on

A Swedish broadband provider recently wondered what life would be like if one of the net’s most annoying aspects impacted our everyday life. To find the answers, the IPS asked everyday people to complete everyday tasks like cooking, playing table tennis and bowling while wearing a modified version of the Oculus Rift to simulate lag.

The visor was equipped with a Logitech webcam and a Raspberry Pi to enable the effect. And with three seconds of lag on the top end, what transpired was absolutely hilarious. Needless to say, life would be pretty difficult if we had to contend with lag!
