Oculus Rift Freak-Out: This Is Why You Don't Prank People In Virtual Reality

Virtual reality is an amazing new frontier for gaming and entertainment.

And, it turns out, people looking for new ways to totally freak out their friends.

This is a great example - a guy in a Russian shopping centre is testing out Oculus Rift and is playing a demo where he rides a roller coaster. In the game he crests the first climb and then... his friend takes out his legs.

What happens next is predictable, cruel and totally hilarious. Congratulations Facebook - you just bought the meanest prank machine in history.
