Lorde, of worldwide music fame, surely has thoughts on a lot of things. Maybe everything. But today, we at this website care only about what she thinks of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.
This interview she did over the weekend with the Guardian contains said thoughts, which are markedly different from ours. Kirk, for example, “had a hell of a lot of fun messing around with it”. I think “the rollercoaster demo makes me a little bit sick”.
But Lorde? Having messed around with a demo that gave her “the sensation of being in a room watching a musician sitting in a studio”, she said “It’s like being in someone’s filth, but on a pure level it’s nice. Kind of like communism.”
I tend to agree with pretty much everything Lorde says because she is great, but I genuinely second the Oculus Rift rollercoaster experience. We tested it out with The Smiler and although it was extremely cool, I almost threw up on myself… All in all a pretty authentic rollercoaster experience!
