I’ve been playing video games since I was a kid, probably around 5 or 6 years old. I started out with a regular Nintendo NES system and I also had an Atari though it didn’t get as much play time as the Nintendo did.

Throughout the years I’ve seen the progression of video game quality so much so that many video games today look so real that sometimes you can’t even tell the difference between the game in real life or if a character is completely made up or if it’s a photo or video of somebody in real life.

One of the big things going on right now as you know is Facebook’s development of the metaverse in which they are looking to create a virtual reality experience that is realistic in able to be integrated into your regular everyday life.

One man, who is actually one of the leaders in the virtual reality development with the Oculus system creative a VR headset that will actually kill the user if they happened to die in the game.

Luckey’s killer headset looks like a Meta Quest Pro hooked up with three explosive charge modules that sit above the screen. The charges are aimed directly at the user’s forebrain and, should they go off, would obliterate the head of the user.

“The idea of tying your real life to your virtual avatar has always fascinated me—you instantly raise the stakes to the maximum level and force people to fundamentally rethink how they interact with the virtual world and the players inside it,” Luckey wrote in a blog post explaining the project. “Pumped up graphics might make a game look more real, but only the threat of serious consequences can make a game feel real to you and every other person in the game.”

I’m not sure why this would be a good idea for something to create. It’s just as crazy as someone messing around with viruses and making them deadlier just for fun.

  • No MAN (or WOMAN) would ever play these MORONIC ‘games’. I would NEVER let MY CHILD(REN) play these LIFE-WASTING, USELESS ‘games’. These activities are for NON HUMANS (aka Zombies).

    • Tell that to Gates, Fauci, Klaus Schwab, and all the other depopulators. They probably invested in the game. Their “game” is deadly, not fun.

  • they create this as a control mechanism in the future when your meta is your social credit scoring system and the IOTs is all hooked up to 10G. You need to learn to think in terms of control systems.

  • Lose the game and you die. Sounds like it’s happening to people all over the world anyway, with all the games the globalists are playing on us. Win the game and you live, and play it again if you have nothing to live for. Perhaps the player has been locked down and out for so long, this is finally HIS choice. Just how did Luckey test it? Obviously not on himself. So it’s a game he’s playing on us. After all, he won’t want to die while he’s raking in billions.

  • The game is new, but the concept is ancient. “Russian Roulette”, skydiving, bear-poking, walking in Chicago, eating fugu. Perceived danger, real and imagined, offers an adrenaline “rush”. Some are productive. Some are senseless and wasteful.
