“One of the biggest disturbances on the internet is lag. It is often associated with a slow internet connection, usually resulting in delays, buffering, pixels and frozen screens. Unfortunately, many have accepted lag as a part of their everyday lives..”, so the swedish network provider

to show the nasty effect of lag in “real life”, four volunteers were tasked to live with lag during two days. the footage was used as a commercial.

equipment used:
Oculus Rift development kit – virtual reality display with built-in displays in front of each eye
Raspberry Pi – single-board computer programmed to adjust delay, resolution and buffering
Noise cancelling headphones
