Living with lag

28 Apr

I don’t usually post so quickly, but this was just shared with me and I couldn’t resist.  Internet provider ume.net filmed an experiment where they used an Oculus Rift headset and webcam to simulate lag in real life. Their victims subjects tried to do daily activities like dancing or cooking while experiencing awful delays. Sure, it’s a promotional viral video, but it’s interesting.

The cooking scene especially makes me think of chat lag, when you’re trying to have a conversation, but responses seem to appear in random order and with no indication if they’re immediate or long delayed.
