Fantastic neon! - my first VR experience

Hungary, late 90s.

Newspaper ad: "Try virtual reality! -Net cafe"

I saved my pocket money for a month, gathering all my courage and going down to that little cellar. I paid for 10 minutes and they put that thing on my head. I had to kill monsters in a spaceship.

Or should have ... I was hit in the first hallway by the rumble of a neon lamp. I looked up and saw the neon tube flicker ...

From that moment on, I didn’t go any further. I went forward, backward, sideways around the lamp, turning my head over and over.

When the time was up, they took the device off my head and...

...all I could say was: This neon is awesome!

...all I think about since then: I must create VR games!
