Video: Animated Commuter Plays VR On The Way To Work

A commuter caused quite a stir in Boston, Massachusetts, after playing a virtual reality game on the way in to work.

The gamer was spotted immersed in a VR game as he rode the Green Line last Friday. Although he was clearly enjoying the experience, fellow commuters looked quite disturbed by the experience.

But it may be something we have to get used to. Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive have already started shipping headsets to homes around the globe, and Sony will be joining the race later in the year this October with PlayStation VR.

Neil Lindquist took the original video and told BBC’s Newsbeat:

“There was a guy sitting there on his VR headset and as the ride went along he was becoming a little bit more animated.

“Initially, he was pretty quiet but about 10 minutes in he was having much more of a reaction to the game.

“At first, I was trying to figure out if it was a joke or not because we were getting pretty close to April Fools. But it wasn’t!”
