The invasion of technology in our lives was not a gradual process. In fact, it came with a bang and now, it is here to stay. Many of the technological advancements have really enhanced our life experiences. The latest in the line is the virtual reality marriage proposal. Wait, what?
This amazing guy made use of VR to propose to his girlfriend. Chandler Murch is an employee of the video game company Valve who proposed to his girlfriend while giving her a demo of the HTC Vive VR headset.
Vive headset is capable of projecting a room-scale virtual reality environment that allows the user to walk around in the virtual scene. Working at Valve comes with certain perks one of which is being able to snag one of the units to give your girlfriend the surprise of her life just like Chandler Murch did.
Kelly Tortoice, the surprised girlfriend shared her amazing proposal on Facebook: “So there I was,
“So there I was, typical day… on a sunken ship deck; fixing robots; painting three-dimensional fire; walking through the Alps; and then suddenly, a virtual engagement ring started floating my way. Chandler told me to grab it. Then told me to take off my headset, and there he really was, on one knee, with a real ring. It wasn’t imaginary anymore. But I didn’t say yes. I said, “OF COURSE I WILL MARRY YOU!” Thank you for such a hilarious and fun surprise. I love you and I can’t wait for the life ahead of us.”
Though Murch proposed his girlfriend before the Vive Headset was made official, the VR headset has now been released and you can also woo your girl with an amazing VR surprise.
