TED 2014 Vancouver

I just tested the Oculus Rift, which is a headset that you wear to experience virtual reality. The headset fits snugly over your head and is very light compared to previous versions of VR equipment. The "Rift" costs 300 dollars. I watched or the better term might be experienced what it might be like to be in the International Space Station watching our planet pass by. It was completely immersive and wonderful. The file is actually available for the public at the following site and you can find out more at the Wikipedia entry for the Oculus.
