People Try To Climb Rope Ladder IRL While Dangling From Helicopter Ladder In Virtual Reality

September 19, 2018

This is a video of several people attempting to climb to the top of a rope ladder and claim a $200 prize while wearing a VR headset and climbing a terrifying rope ladder dangling from a helicopter in virtual reality. Plus the people who orchestrated the stunt use giant fans to blow the ladder around and let onlookers throw foam rocks and squirt water guns. Obviously, I would have made it to the top no problem, but that's just me and I always wear a jetpack. "You don't always wear a jetpack." Yes I do too, just not to bed anymore (sorry honey).

Keep going for the video. Also, props to that one kid with the foam rock for the headshot.

Thanks to John, who agrees there's never any real money in a sack with a giant dollar sign on the side.

    Not if you’re really moving around in real life, from what I hear. It’s the perceived discrepancy between all of your senses telling you that you’re moving in 3D space clashing with your inner ear’s sense of balance and movement that causes that feeling of nausea, apparently.

    Looks like it's rigged (1:05 and 1:21). Looks like they put plastic pipe over the rungs.

  • Jenness

    Or just rolling bars over some - so yeah - cheaters!! LOL

    I didn't know Vive has waterproofing! Maybe they can do a VR swimming pool? Nah the lighthouse stations probably won't function under water due to constant refraction and distortion...

    finally i can live my dream of being in the pool during that scene from Fast Times

    JUST SO EVERYONE KNOWS, my new favorite hobby is voting for the least popular/most inappropriate responses thing. Hopefully I'm the only one voting for whatever response.

    Well fuck, I just watched a commercial. I thought it seemed way too scripted. Oh well. You've won this round Consumerism...

  • stuffsticks

    The fact they got water guns on them told me it was all a scripted advert. No way they'd be allowed to take random people off the street and douse them in water without causing trouble.

    This looks extremely fun.

    WOULD

    TRY

    Closes eyes, climbs, looks around, rinse, repeat, lather.
