The Closest Thing to a VR Roller Coaster Without, Y’Know, Riding One

Any roller coaster worth its weight in lost lunches has the same objective: to be as vertiginous as possible while maintaining a healthy regard for human life.

So it should come as no surprise that one of the early applications of virtual reality headsets is to wed them quite recklessly/happily to roller coasters.

Should you not live in or near St. Louis, you can go experience this phenomenon firsthand. Should you not, here is a video of someone else doing it.

It’s from the Samsung Gear-connected New Revolution ride at Six Flags St Louis. Happy Friday.
