Alright my Rift took quite a hit this week and it still works flawlessly.
I was showing Ritchie's Plank to my family and we were having a blast (using a real 2x6 plank) BTW if you havent tried it, do it, it's insane. People new to VR find this experience so scary!
Anyhow, my 8 yo had gone on the plank a few times and she was now comfortable on it and laughing and so on... So what I did when she was at the edge, is... I pushed her off the plank... She went down face first on the floor crying. The Rift took the fall first, she now has 2 black eyes, a scratch on her nose and cheek... But the Rift is fine lol.
I felt so bad when it happened... Of course my first thought went to my daughter who was crying (not! Lol)
It also showed me the natural human reaction when being pushed down a building lol. Instead of putting her hands in front she opened her arms wide like they were wings... So you could say that I did that for science.
The next day, after school I asked her if her friends did asked her about her face, and she told me no, but my teacher did... Ok? What did you tell her? That my daddy pushed me off a plank and I fell down a building!
I was like, honey you have to explain that it was in VR!
So as of today, I am waiting for the cops and child services lol...
