The creator of Meta’s Oculus platform may have difficulty getting volunteers to test his next innovation – a virtual reality headgear that can physically kill you. Check the news Oculus headset: If you die in game , you die in real life on Switzerland based Lifestyle Magazine- Kenleaks Magazine.

When a user dies in a virtual game, NerveGear, invented by 30-year-old Oculus creator Palmer Luckey, quickly “destroys the brain.

Except for the three horrifying ‘explosive charge modules’ aimed at the user’s skull, it seems to be a standard headset.

When the user dies virtually during gaming, the modules shoot at their head, instantly killing them.

Luckey confessed that the gadget is not yet ready, but he may have difficulty acquiring permission to use it even when it is.

The gadget was inspired by Sword Art Online, an anime series that has a VR game of the same name that can be accessed via a helmet called NerveGear, which stimulates the user’s five senses through their brain.

In the series, users may use their thoughts to experience and control their in-game characters while wearing NerveGear.

However, when 10,000 players first enter into the game online, they realize that they are unable to log out – and that removing their helmet would be catastrophic.

‘A crazy scientist locked players inside a death game that could only be freed by completing it,’ Luckey adds.

NerveGear in the game had a microwave emitter that could be overdriven to fatal levels, but Luckey has employed explosive charge modules instead.

These are linked to a light sensor, which detects when the screen flashes red at a specified frequency to signal virtual death.

Luckey, a video game aficionado who now owns defense contractor Anduril Industries, founded Oculus when he was 15 years old, working on prototypes in his parents’ garage.

He began designing head-mounted VR displays while still in high school and was in college when he produced the first prototype of the Oculus Rift, a consumer-priced VR headset, but he eventually quit to focus on the project full-time.

Luckey quit Meta (then known as Facebook) in 2017, three years after Mark Zuckerberg’s firm acquired Oculus.

The young entrepreneur subsequently told CNBC that he was sacked from Facebook ‘for no reason at all,’ while he suggested that his $10,000 donation to a pro-Trump group may have had something to do with it.
