Living with Lag | Ume.net


Internet lag can be one of the most irritating facets of the digital world, but what happens when Swedish broadband provider Ume.net introduced online lag to our everyday lives?

In Living with Lag, their part-social experiment, part-awesome viral, four volunteers donned the revolutionary Oculus Rift headset combined with a Raspberry Pi & noise-cancelling headphones and experienced one of the most disorientating days of their lives. Viewing life via the Oculus Rift HUD, the live feed was delayed by 0.33 of a second, or a whole 3 seconds during various activities. The results are fascinating and completely hilarious.
