    I've got my beartrap and landmine collection in my VR room. Maybe I shouldn't leave them littered across the floor?

    In terms of dangerous stuff...

    I had a friend of mine who actually created a VR application for flying your plane in zero visibility where many pilots freak out and do stupid things. Apparently by removing the offending murkiness and replacing it with a virtual horizon, people could land a plane without seeing anything.

    However any bets on whether anyone would ever release a product like that?

    I just finished a marathon session of In Death in room scale and got a fright for the first time in a while. I had a red knight come up right behind me and freaked me out. No one except virtual zombies were hurt.

    A bunch of smart innovative guys that was naive enough to think they could get paid big money and keep the control.
    But not bad to be paid $2B for designing a phone VR replacement (Oculus Quest)
