Oculus Founder Invents VR Headset that Kills Users If They Die In-Game

“The good news is that we are halfway to making a true NerveGear. The bad news is that so far, I have only figured out the half that kills you.”
Oculus founder Palmer Luckey, working on a new VR headset that will kill the user if they die in-game. Inspired by the NerveGear helmets in the Sword Art Online anime, Luckey’s prototype features three explosive charges aimed at the player’s brain. “At this point, it’s just a piece of office art,” he reveals in his personal blog, “a thought-provoking reminder of unexplored avenues in game design.”
