Antonio’s working on a story about virtual reality on Samsung Galaxy phones. But the amazing thing is that once he began his research, we all watched him get completely absorbed.
Seriously, he’s had a screen inches from his face for hours at a time without coming up for air these last few days.
And the experience seems entirely positive — even though you’d expect hours of ultra-close-up screen time to be wearing.
But Antonio seems entirely content cut off from the outside world.
Our editor Steve Kovach got a selfie with him without Antonio noticing.
Then editor Dave Smith did the same:
Though hearing us giggling, Antonio switched on the pass-through camera to see what was going on.
But still, Antonio stayed in VR for ages, leading us to wonder if he’d ever return to IRL. And this is just a low-key, cell phone screen version of the tech!
Take it from us: Your friends are about to start spending a lot of time in virtual reality. Better get on board.
You ok in there, buddy?
