Drunk People Don't Like The Oculus Rift

Seems kind of obvious that drunk people wouldn't like using VR goggles. Getting motion sick while you are completely trashed just doesn't seem like fun. Maybe they can make a barf bag that clips to the Oculus Rift, problem solved. wink

"What happens is, when you get severely intoxicated, you end up throwing up," Luckey said. "One of the reasons for that is that your body knows something is wrong; your reaction time is slow, things seem to blur. And if it gets bad enough, it says 'Wow, I'm screwed up, I need to get whatever it is out of my stomach that's causing this.' The Rift doesn't do that much, but when you stack it on top of someone already being intoxicated, they tend to not enjoy it nearly as much."
