  • - (Finebros) So today, you are not reacting to a video.

  • - Okay, I can deal with that.

  • - What am I gonna do then?

  • - (Finebros) Instead, you're gonna be reacting to this.

  • - Oh.

  • - Oh my goodness! Oh, wait.

  • - It's like a goggle?

  • - Whoa, this is some type of virtual reality stuff, isn't it?

  • - That is not what I did before.

  • - This is like the what-you-call-it, the Oculus Rift?

  • - (Finebros) So this is called the HTC Vive

  • and it's a new virtual reality device. - Cool. I love it.

  • I want to see this.

  • - (Finebros) And some say it takes virtual reality to the next level.

  • - I'm excited.

  • - Can I put it on? Can I put it on?

  • - (Finebros) All right, are you ready to stand up and give it a shot?

  • - Stand up? Well, that's a tough shot right there!

  • - I am old, so you're not gonna scare the hell outta me, are you?

  • - This is gonna be strange and different, but hey-- no guts, no glory.

  • - (Finebros) So we're gonna set you up and explain how to use it and just throw you in.

  • Are you ready?

  • - I guess so. (laughing) This should be different.

  • What do I do?

  • - I guess I need to take my hair down.

  • - (Finebros) How does it feel to be in the virtual reality world?

  • - It's, uh... am I still in the same room?

  • - I feel a little off-balance.

  • - Wow, that looks like the universe.

  • - Even this thing's 3D! These are 3D. Woo-hoo-hoo!

  • - You can go all the way around in this puppy? You can!

  • Oh my goodness!

  • - That is absolutely staggering.

  • - (Finebros) So the first game you're gonna be playing

  • is called Tilt Brush, which lets you paint in a 3D space.

  • - Oh, wow!

  • - I love to paint.

  • - I'm not a painter, but we'll give it a shot.

  • - (Finebros) Using the controller in your right hand,

  • you can control the paint brush and draw whatever you want.

  • - Hold it up like that?

  • - Oh.

  • - Right now, I am doing a head.

  • - I am drawing a heart with an arrow in it.

  • - I used to be a school psychologist.

  • If I had to grade this, IQ zero.

  • - I'm doin' my name.

  • - This is so cool. I love it.

  • - It's like I could touch it.

  • It's not flat. It's three dimensional.

  • - (Finebros) Something really cool is once you're done painting,

  • you can fully walk around it and see it from all different angles.

  • - You're kidding.

  • - Awesome!

  • - This is a lot of fun.

  • It's not just for kids. It's for anyone.

  • - I'm inside the painting.

  • I'm on the other side of the painting.

  • - Holy crap! The things they could do with this.

  • - I absolutely know I'm gonna dream about this tonight.

  • - (Finebros) Okay, time to move on to the next game.

  • - Okay.

  • - This has to be the gift of the year.

  • - (Finebros) Welcome to Robot Repair!

  • - A whole new world here.

  • - Unbelievable! Security camera, hi!

  • - (Finebros) So go over to that garage and pull on the red lever.

  • - To the doors?

  • - But there is no lever--

  • I can't pull something that's not even there!

  • -There it goes.

  • - Ah, there's a weird robot!

  • - Oh shit!

  • How do you stop it?

  • - It doesn't look friendly. I might have to zap him.

  • - Get out of my way!

  • - Oh, disabled. Is he disabled?

  • - This is going so high-tech.

  • Boy, can you think of the brains that went into putting this together?

  • - My brain is saying if you reach out with your hand and touch this,

  • you will touch a cold, white metal.

  • It's unbelievable.

  • - (Finebros) If you grab the yellow circle, you can spin it.

  • - Oh, okay.

  • Stop. 15 seconds.

  • - How do I-- just do this?

  • - I see a bunch of little gadgets.

  • - Holy shit!

  • - Whoop! What did I do?

  • - Oh my god! Everything fell apart. I ruined everything.

  • Ah-hah! Ah, the floor is falling!

  • - Whoa! Whoa!

  • - Look at the distance down there.

  • - That's very deep. Can I fall in there? No.

  • It's not real.

  • - Uh-oh!

  • Oh! I'm so sorry.

  • - (AI) What kind of robot can't handle the simplest...

  • - Okay, now what? This guy, he's pointing at me.

  • - Oh! Here's another one. - (AI) Oh, it's you.

  • - It's me.

  • - Oh my god!!

  • - What do you want up there?

  • - (AI) Congratulations on your quota-filling promotion, by the way.

  • You've opened all our eyes to what humans can achieve

  • when you put... - Well, it's only my first time here.

  • - My hands are absolutely sweating.

  • Oh my god!

  • - (Finebros) You can turn around. The game is done.

  • - Oh!

  • - (Finebros) What did you think?

  • - I-I don't even know what to say 'cause this is just so cool.

  • - Really fun.

  • It's very expansive to a very limited mind. (laughing)

  • - I really had a fear that they were gonna take the floor from underneath me.

  • I almost fell into the thinking it was reality.

  • - (Finebros) For your final experience, you'll be playing the shooter game,

  • The Brookhaven Experiment, where your controller is a gun

  • and you'll need to fight off zombies. - Zombies?!

  • - Right up my alley.

  • - Cool, I like this.

  • This is like a Saturday night special.

  • - Come on! Come to the Rocky.

  • I got somethin' for ya!

  • - Oh, this is like Five Nights at Freddy's.

  • - Where are the zombies?

  • - Ooh, look at that!

  • Oh god, there's a-- it's like a... is it called a sarcopha--

  • aaaaaaah!

  • Here comes something.

  • - (laughing) Oh shit.

  • - Oh dear god, they're coming everywhere.

  • - You! You! You! In your head! Ah!

  • Bite that.

  • Goddamn it.

  • No, okay, I can't do it anymore.

  • - Well, I'm doing great.

  • - You're trying to reach in here for me, you asshole!

  • - Oh, there's a lot of them!

  • (I died.

  • (gun shots) - How's that?

  • I blew your stinking head off!

  • (zombie moans) - Ah ha ha ha!

  • In your-- (bullet chamber clicks)

  • Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow!

  • Take that! I'll shove this down your throat!

  • I think I'm out of ammo.

  • (blasting gun) - (laughing) Shit!

  • (breathlessly) Oh shi--- (laughing).

  • Wait a minute. It's not done?

  • This is very intense.

  • I don't even know what direction I'm in.

  • - (Finebros) Okay, let's take it off.

  • - Wow!

  • - As a senior, our balance does change.

  • I felt a little unsteady.

  • - The first video game I remember is Pong, you know,

  • and you were very much separate from the game,

  • and this is you... there's no separation.

  • - (Finebros) So what are your final thoughts after experiencing

  • the HTC Vive? - I thought it was really cool.

  • - It literally took my breath away.

  • - It's like you're there. You're there!

  • It's so [bleep] real!

  • - My stomach is a little unsettled from it.

  • - My heart, it's just pounding right now.

  • I'm breathing hard!

  • - It simulates reality to where it fools your senses.

  • - I grew up in South America, didn't see TV til I was 18.

  • So even that was exciting.

  • And this, you know, TV was a flat thing in front of you

  • in grey and white, right?

  • And now you have this amazing world that you'd walk into.

  • - To watch technology grow from the '70s on

  • and things get smaller and things get clearer,

  • it's like a fantasy come true.
