Living with lag

We put this video up on our various social media sites earlier in the week (here’s our Facebook page, if you’re not familiar with it yet: we’re also on G+ and Twitter if you’d like to chat), but so many of you have emailed me about it since then that I’m giving it a spot here, too. Ume.net are a Swedish broadband provider, and they conducted this experiment to demonstrate just how sucky lag would be if you had to put up with it in real life, using an Oculus Rift headset and a Raspberry Pi. In the end, this is just a piece of advertising: but it’s a beautifully realised project which made us laugh, and if my inbox is anything to go by, it seems that a lot of you liked it too. Enjoy!
