Air Accident Experience released with the worst timing


So uncomfortable

[Update: Looks like the video was removed from YouTube as well as being removed from the front page of the Oculus VR Share site, but you can still see Air Accident Experience’spage here.]

In what has to be the worst timing ever, Air Accident Experience has been released for the Oculus Rift. The experience is educational and teaches players what to do in a situation where your airplane crash lands into the ocean.

It was developed at the University of Udine’sHuman-Computer Interaction Lab with seemingly no ill intent as its creators state, “A user study has shown that the virtual experience produces better knowledge retention results than traditional aviation safety education materials.”

Air Accident Experiencecomes just days after the tragic loss of 150 lives in the Germanwingscrash of Flight 9525 into the Alps.
