If you ever though virtual reality was just a gimmick, this video might change your mind.
The clip, uploaded to YouTube by Norwegian gaming couple Karl and Renate , shows Renate getting to grips with Phosphor Games' The Brookhaven Experiment , a survival horror game for the HTC Vive VR headset.
It's a fairly straightforward VR game - the player, anchored to one spot in a creepy (and pitch-black) expanse of wasteland, has to fight off wave after wave of horrific monsters, upgrading their weapons and abilities as they go.
Using one controller as her weapon and the other as a torch, valiant Renate makes it through the first wave alive - screaming, shaking and hyperventilating for the duration.
Watching the video, it's surprising the neighbours didn't call the police.
It's a funny (and slightly terrifying) video on its own, but it also goes to show the power of VR - it'll be interesting to see what kind of reactions horror games provoke in the future, once the technology has improved and games become even more immersive.
Most People Haven't Tried It Yet. Virtual reality keeps growing in popularity. One study found that only one in three people in the United States have actually tried virtual reality. That means that there is still more room for acceptance among consumers in the country. On a positive note, nearly 90 percent of people were aware of virtual reality, which also means that many people have a basic understanding of the technology, even though they have not yet experienced it in person. The future is bright for the industry.
