These Augmented Reality Glasses Are James Bond-Worthy

This Guy Can't Stand Up Straight While Using The Oculus Rift

It’s definitely true that Oculus Rift VR goggles are capable of wonderful miracles for a 90-year-old. As for normal people? We can barely keep our heads on or even stand up straight.
