Imagine the world ninety years ago. No Starbucks, no rock and roll, no colour TV. Mankind had only harnessed the power of flight a few years before, and landing on the Moon was just a dream had by crazy people. Many of us cannot even begin to comprehend such a world. In less than a century, we’ve become a globally-connected peoples with information and entertainment at our fingertips, instantly accessible, and technology is showing no signs of slowing down.
Now imagine if you had grown up in such times, and someone told you that you could see into another world of your own creation, with just a pair of glasses and a box of electricity.
The lady in the video is ninety years old, trying out the latest technology in virtual reality, the Oculus Rift.
I’ve never seen anyone so happy just from looking at stuff. The future is here, folks, even for people who never thought they would see it.
Enjoy your weekends!
