    We’ve seen many things that claim to be the future of VR: everything from how to help people overcome a fear of public speaking to Disney using it to create new characters to how to get a bit closer to the action inside your favourite porno.

    But, nothing quite compares to the level of sophistication and immersive nature of the video above. While Oculus has lots of bells and whistles, it doesn’t physically shake your body when you fly over bumps, does it?
