Palmer Luckey Delivered the First Oculus Rift

Over the weekend or a couple days ago (I don't really know too much about weeks and how they end, I just power down on Friday nights at 11:35 PM), Palmer Luckey, CEO/Co-Founder/Terrible Handshake Giver/Creator of Oculus Rift decided to throw all those titles away to replace it with "Delivery Guy".
Luckey flew to Alaska to deliver the first retail version of the Oculus Rift to Ross Martin, who understandably looked confused throughout the whole process. In a video that Luckey put on his Facebook, you can see the two nerdiest people to ever have existed meet in person.
All jokes aside though, I think it's kind of cool that Palmer Luckey decided to hand-deliver the first retail version of his product. I mean, as awkward and weird as the video is, you can't deny that it's pretty cool that Ross Martin got a short walkthrough of the product he bought from the guy who made the product he bought.
It makes me wish that I was the first person to buy anything because maybe then some guy who made the thing that I decided to buy (a shoe) would come over and show me how to tie it properly because I don't know how to tie a shoe.
11:35 exactly?!
@ButterflyBlu, Unfortunately, yeah. I need to undergo some software/hardware updates so I need to power down so I could get all of them in for the next week... Geez, I swear I wish I was built better.

Virtual Reality Lets You Hang With Totoro
British VR developers FirePanda have been hard at work the last few years. While most of the anticipation surrounding Virtual Reality has been game-centric, there are other VR developers who understand that there might be people interested in VR, but not in the gaming aspects of it. FirePanda are using VR for larger goals than just games (though they do have a game or two as well). They've used VR as an educational tool, for medical students to get some virtual hands-on practice in a RESUS room. They've also now begun rolling out little VR experiences taken directly from the films of Studio Ghibli. Check out this VR video: If you don't have any kind of VR headset like myself, this is a hard video to watch properly. The VR displays a mirrored image onto both of your eyes, hence the two displays in the video. Without the headset, this is just a strange video. But iconic. Everyone who's an anime fan has seen Totoro, and even if you haven't, you'd be familiar with the rotund spirit. So far, they have VR-d scenes from My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, and Howl's Moving Castle. My personal favorite is the Howl's Moving Castle one, because the scene they picked is the fields outside of the house from Howl's childhood. That is definitively my favorite setting in the film, and the chance to experience it in VR is astounding to me. I don't have a VR headset yet, but if I ever get one, this is the first thing I'm gonna do. Check out all the anime VR stuff FirePanda has to offer here.
