Yelp just took its Monocle augmented reality feature to the next level with this silly “Yelpulus Rift” parody video. It looks like this was made last year during a Hackathon and only now posted in order to have some fun with Facebook’s acquisition of Oculus VR.

If you want to build this for yourself, it looks like all you’ll need is a couple iPads, a bike helmet, some duct tape, a desk lamp, and four cans of Coke.
