Elders Try Out Oculus Rift, Get Totally Freaked Out

The latest video from the Fine Brothers introduces elder folks to the Oculus Rift virtual reality device. And it's a delight.

The subjects, none of whom have never used the headset, slip on the Oculus Rift and access the virtual reality display. At first, the elders were a bit hesitant about the whole thing.

"My God, I'm not going to electrocute myself, am I?" one man quips.

But then, as they explored the virtual reality landscape, they began to enjoy the view.

"Is George Clooney's house nearby?" one woman asks, enthralled.

Their responses -- even at their most skeptical -- are quite endearing.
