Conan O’Brien tries the HTC Vive and shows why you need virtual reality
If you still haven’t tried virtual reality, then yes, you’re missing out.
So for the stubborn VR skeptics out there, allow us to introduce you to the technology through the self-effacing comedic stylings of Conan O’Brien, who has the ability to make nearly anything accessible using a ginger pompadour and smile.
O’Brien recently visited the YouTube Space in New York to sample VR using the HTC Vive, and the experience was the perfect demonstration for anyone still sitting on the VR sidelines. Conan paints using Tilt Brush and then works in a virtual office and restaurant, coming up with impromptu experiments that are both funny and illustrative of how immersive VR can be.
The good news is that you don’t need VIP access to do what Conan did. The HTC Vive is finally available to all, witty observations not included.
