  • Posted 53 months Ago

One of the most irritating everyday annoyances in the modern age is internet lag, causing video and music playback to skip around and just generally piss everyone off. To see how annoying the same effect would be in real life, Swedish broadband provider paired up with reality headset Oculus Rift for an experiment called "Living with Lag". Four volunteers were asked to go about their daily routines using the headset combined with a webcam and noise cancelling headphones, which then fed them a normal view but with a lag ranging between 0.33-seconds to 3-seconds. Watch the results above.
