Had a neighbour pop over to borrow his spare key becuase he left his at work. He's never seen VR before so I thought show him 'TheBlu' and the whale scene.
He put the HMD on and was gasping in amazement, I thought he was in the Oculus Home starting area, he wasn't he was still on the 'look here to start screen' and was freaking out in joy at just seeing his hands in VR.
He entered the Oculus Home but was reluctant to look around at first.
I started up TheBlu and as soon as the intro popped up, he froze in fear, would not move and said it was really freaking him out, and that he needed to take the HMD off.
He then told me that whenever he took the kids to an aquarium, he had to stay out the way as he had a fear of being around or near water. I felt terrible and wished I had ask him what things he liked and disliked first.
He was very reluctant to want to try anything else after that, but I calmed him down and managed to get him to watch 'Henry' and he thought it was absolutely amazing!
He said the next time he comes round he's going to have a glass of wine first! 🙂
I use a Gear VR and will get my rift system in a week or two. Is there a big difference in the two as being more into the scene ect...?
