Editor's note: We had originally planned to run this gallery on Saturday, June 1, but found out the day before that Andrew Scott Reisse, a co-founder of Oculus VR, had just been killed in an accident. We are running it now as a tribute to the product Reisse helped create, and we offer our condolences to the family, friends, and co-workers mourning his loss.
The Oculus Rift stands as one of the hottest products to hit the gaming scene in recent memory, as the head-mounted display offers a truly immersive 3D experience due to the added benefit of head-tracking.
The device made a killing on Kickstarter and quickly went into limited production for interested gamers and developers, which led to an outpouring of viral videos that show regular people having some very amusing reactions to the Oculus experience. We've rounded up 10 amusing clips of people having their first Oculus experience, and as you'll see, nothing can prepare the wearer what's about to happen.
YouTube user Ibarakiprefecture provided this funny video of his co-worker nearly wiping out a roller coaster demo for the Oculus Rift. Ibarakiprefecture notes in the video description, "He probably should've sat down." We agree.
