You have to imagine the blocks floating toward me that I'm cutting in half with the light sabers I'm holding in my hands.

Yeah, I'd end up wrecking the room and then throwing up from motion sickness.

Well now I want to do this.  Can you show what you see?

This isn't me (obviously since he is wearing a hard wired headset and thus has limited mobility) but it is a good representation of what it feels like to do the song in Beat Saber:

The beauty of the Oculus Quest is that it is all self contained with no wires at all. This allows you to define a space and then really move in that space. The Quest really is a game changer for VR. The Oculus Quest has been on back order since it was released in March.

Also, as long as you don't artificially move around in the VR space (like using the joystick to propel your body somewhere your legs aren't taking you), there is no risk of motion sickness. I mean really DC, how long ago did you actually last try a VR headset?
