Guy Playing Virtual Reality Ping-Pong Learns The Table Isn't Really There

This is a video of Twitch streamer Ragethe4KGamer playing a casual game of virtual reality table tennis when he unthinkingly goes to scoop the ball off the table and falls through it. You know, because that's why it's called virtual reality -- the stuff really isn't there. Just a heads up though if you fall in virtual reality you can still shatter a hip so be careful. Especially if you have friends who won't hesitate to push you into a coffee table when you're vulnerable. I remember one time I was at a buddy's place checking out his new VR system and-- "Somebody pushed you?" No, they all quietly left to go to a party without me. "Awwww." It's cool, who would want to stick around for a massive house fire anyways?

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Luc, who agrees actual reality is already virtual enough. WHAT IS CRYPTOCURRENCY?

    even funnier, is the opponent; a 'robot' seems to be a human player laughing his ass of as well. But wearing that virtual robot costume in the game looks just as funny.

    Another compelling reason for me to get an Oculus Rift.

    I'll send GW the video when this inevitably happens to me

  • Geekologie

    I'll be waiting

  • Jenness

    I thought "how out of shape do you have to be to fall over that easily?" then realized I'm a total hypocrite seeing as how I can trip over air.

  • Tigerh8r

    I was thinking, "In his defense, he looks like he probably falls down a lot."

    I'm glad it's not just me. ;)

  • Doog

    Hey air is a fickle thing sometimes and seems to intentionally try and sabotage lives on a whim. It's also pretty integral to our longevity so I guess we shouldn't complain too much about it.

  • Jenness

    I will complain about air but only behind it's back - because I have manners.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Okay, that was the funniest noises I have ever heard coming out of someone who realized too late their mistake.

  • James Mcelroy

    I wasn't nearly as entertained as those in the video. That's my loss.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I'm tempted to call it infections laughter but really it was just annoying. I couldn't really hear anything he was saying. Just something to the effect of "I fell". Which... yeah. I have eyes fucker. I guess for all your blind viewers out there maybe they needed that.

    Side note: Does anyone else think Twitch is cancer?

  • Munihausen

    Perhaps your sense of humor needs to be more juvenile.

  • Eric Ord

    If you think about it maybe it's your gain because maybe they're satisfied while you're still hungry for something even more entertaining. Did you ever think about that?

  • Doog

    Are you actually suggesting that James didn't think that he was looking for something more entertaining?

    I mean what else could he have been thinking? "That wasn't entertaining enough for me, but it's the best the world has to offer so I'll settle" - James Mcelroy (in an unsatisfactory parallel universe)

  • James Mcelroy

    Stay thirsty my friends...for better entertainment.

  • Doog

    Can you really be both hungry and thirsty for better entertainment?

    In a word, yes.

  • Meh

    No tv smashed or bones broken, where's the entertainment value.
