    If virtual reality really is the future, this guy is going to be one ripped mofo.

    Spotted by Japanese blog ToyChan, this Chinese roller coaster simulation takes a decidedly low-tech approach to futuristic gaming. Rather than shelling out thousands for a futuristic rig, like this, a Chinese man takes the manual approach.

    While one man — a customer, from the looks of it — dons a VR headset, another — an employee, perhaps — moves what looks to be a metal platform around to mimic the screen’s movements.

    It’s not the most elegant approach, but it seems to get the job done.
