Virtual reality tech lets combat veterans fly again

Virtual reality tech lets combat veterans fly again

Not every senior, like this WWII veteran, has the opportunity to take to the skies again.

That is, until now.

Thanks to the rising popularity of Oculus Rift, and Reddit user Jwsimmons, seniors, former pilots and other veterans can once again take to the skies and relive some of the glory days.

The main game being played is called War Thunder, a fight and battle game. It's important to note that the version used in the homes have disabled the combat options, so seniors can calmly fly and reminisce.

Reddit user Jwsimmons has made a hobby out of teaching the technology to seniors and has posted his findings and photos to Reddit, where they are gaining popularity. Click here to see his Reddit account to learn more.
