Valve Employee Turns Tech Demo Into VR Marriage Proposal

I prefer the traditional marriage proposal, but I guess that won’t get you as many likes on Facebook.

The clever (and delightfully nerdy) wedding proposal was conjured up by her boyfriend Chandler Murch. He just so happens to work at Valve, so getting his hands on the HTC Vive headset probably wasn't too difficult. But it was the virtual reality system's inventive controllers that allowed the proposal to go off without a hitch: by holding the controller out in front of his girlfriend, Murch was able to line up the virtual ring and the engagement ring.
