Twitch streamer ‘disruptY2K38’ spent an entire week wearing a virtual-reality headset - which lead to some hilarious shenanigans, in the process.
‘Disrupt’ challenged himself to go an entire week without removing his VR headset, which begs the question: how did he perform basic human tasks like eating or showering?
Thanks to a clip from Disrupt’s stream, viewers can see that he was able to shower by protecting his headset with a ream of plastic wrap pulled around a box frame made of pvc pipe, thus shielding his equipment from the water.
Disrupt switched between using an Oculus Rift and a wireless, HTC Vive Focus, which allowed him to travel throughout his house during the stream’s broadcast period.
Of course, the streamer also had to switch out these HMDs, at times - which he managed by placing the fresh display over his eyes just after removing his previous headset in one, swift motion.
Once his week was over, Disrupt streamed himself finally removing the headset, where he seemed relieved at returning to the real world:
“The feeling is so good,” Disrupt stated, rubbing at his eyes and laughing. “Oh my god. I can see everything.”
This isn’t the first time a streamer has undertaken a crazy challenge for their audience, either; ‘Johnny_Now’ broadcasted footage of himself inside of a cage for 30 days straight, in the hopes of curing his addictions to junk food and sodas.
Johnny called the experiment a “self-improvement program,” and claimed that he hoped to write a book detailing his experience in the cage.
