The elderly get a bad rap when it comes to technology. It’s entirely unfair to say that the elderly can’t accept new technologies when one grandmother not only uses innovative technologies, but fully endorses it as well.
Paul Rivot, who recently got his hands on an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset dev kit, had his 90-year-old grandmother give it a go. What follows is an adorable exchange between Rivot and his grandmother as she explores a Tuscan house. Her reactions are endearing, heartwarming, and makes me miss the kind of starry eyed reaction that a lot of us used to have when it came to new technologies.
I can only hope that this charming woman makes us realize that we’re all taking technology for granted far too often. As Louis C.K. once said – “The shittiest cellphone in the world is a miracle.”[h/t: Gizmodo UK]
