This Virtual Reality Experience Is So Real It’s Scary

PC World’s Brad Chacos writes about how his natural fear of heights overtook all of his gamer instincts while trying out an Everest virtual reality experience with the HTC Vive.

He writes, “Until my body refused to move while trying to scale Mount Everest, I never understood how vital proper made-for-VR controls could be to the virtual reality experience. I mean, I’ve played tons of Oculus games and demos on an Xbox 360 controller and found myself immersed just fine. But motion controls and freedom of physical movement push it over the top.”
