90-year-old grandmother loves virtual reality system

Watch this adorable video of woman trying Oculus Rift glasses


There are a ton of videos featuring the Oculus Rift virtual reality system, which made a big splash at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, but the one that gets me really excited to try it out comes not from a tech journalist or other video game fan, but from a 90-year-old grandmother.

In this video, we get to see her reaction on visiting a virtual, 3D Tuscany while wearing the glasses. Tell me you don't want to go out and buy these after watching this clip:

Holy Mackerel, indeed. You go, grandma!

The development kit for the system is expected to ship in June 2013 ($300). Hopefully we'll be able to see some consumer products before the end of the year.
