    This is a video of some guy demoing an Oculus Rift in a mall (Oh shit -- TGI Fridays?! I'll have the loaded potato skins!) and riding a virtual roller coaster when his buddy pushes him over right when he's about to make the first drop. He freaks out. And I don't blame him, it... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Ferrari F-1 roller coaster in Abu Dhabi. It does 0 to 62 in two seconds and tops out at 150MPH. Impressive, Ferrari roller coaster, but I've gone faster. On a bike. Sure it was in a dream and the bike also flew like the one in E.T., but I'll be damned... / Continue →
