Living with Lag, the Hilarious Oculus Rift Experiment…

Demonstrating the down sides of slow laggy internet connections Swedish provider ume.net has carried out an experiment most interesting. Curious about the effects of lag on living creatures une.net concocted an amazingly effective experiment using an Oculus Rift headset, camera and lag inducing computer power.

Four volunteers took turns being subjected to a life where you sensors are seconds behind the real world. The lag was so disrupting that it often made the subjects feel completely disconnected from reality, even though they were only a few seconds behind the rest of the world.

Presented for your viewing pleasure is the world put on a few second delay, living in the past has never been so hilarious. Sit back, relax and try not to compensate, it will only make the sensation worse.
