Oculus Rift and Retina - Kids will maybe play Floorball like this?


Some folks say Oculus Rift will turn Education up-side-down or just disintegrate it.
Oculus Rift? Here http://www.oculusvr.com/

Or Ping Pong? Sex maybe?


OK, let us switch gear.
Before we have the rift... we have the retina, our head and as we add that with #passion for the game of Floorball - interesting things happens to our own retina and the amazing image memory we carry around since we became humans or maybe even before that.

If you do a cool Floorball move it gets stuck in our old brain like an image memory or video clip like for a long time.. The intensity gets hammered into the brain with a shower of adrenaline we think...

Do you know what we talk about?

Our own last big image memory is from the 2014 Midwest Floorball Championship in the recreational division. We played goalie and ended up swimming on the floor. A good shot comes high - the only way to react was to toss up a leg. And with what the we say - would have been a solid top shelf score... the left foot blocked the shot. By standers cheering along - this is what we remember - and not the score of the game.

Na, we do not call this virtual reality - we call it reality reality - caught on the retina - and it stays... maybe not forever but for a jolly good time - and it is both real and original.

What is next? Who builds software that caters to both Floorball and the Oculus Rift?

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
