Going back to the Virtual Boy, gamers have been craving a virtual reality gaming head set that didn’t suck goat balls. It looks like the Oculus VR might just be the answer to our dreams. The new headset has the potential to completely revolutionize gaming and even just the way we watch visual entertainment.

To most current gamers, the Oculus looks like something from the future. To a 90 year old woman, you can multiply that by infinity. Check out this video of her reaction when her grandson has her test out a virtual reality simulation of Tuscany, Italy.

Here’s the story of Oculus from their website:
Oculus VR™ was founded by Palmer Luckey, self-described virtual reality enthusiast and hardware geek. The company launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund development of their first product, the Oculus Rift, a ground-breaking virtual reality headset for immersive gaming. With the support of top video game companies including Valve, Epic Games and Unity, the Kickstarter was an enormous success, raising over $2.4 million in funding from project backers and supporters around the world.

The team is currently developing the Oculus Rift in an effort to revolutionize the way people experience interactive content.

Here’s the official video about the Oculus VR:
