Say hello to the virtual reality skateboard simulator


I’m pretty sure that the first question asked in this new BBC technology video feature will be met with the same answer: Me mate.

This new virtual reality skateboarding simulator that has been developed at the Tokyo Institute of Technology has been designed to gives the rider a close feeling of what it’s like to actually skateboard. Or does it?

I can’t seem to remember my body being turned into a vibrator over the last few sessions, although I am looking forward to a cobble sesh this weekend. At least the presenter didn’t push mongo.
