Elderly Woman Experiences Wingsuit Flying Through Virtual Reality
Hilarious editing has emerged making for an extremely funny and entertaining video of an elderly woman experiencing the virtues of virtual reality. Watch as this woman simulates what it would be like to BASE jump from a top a mountain dressed in wingsuit. Priceless!
This lady has always wanted to go on a daredevil adventure but never really had the chance and the courage to make that a reality. That is why she wanted to try this virtual-reality wingsuit flying experience and scratch BASE jumping off her bucket list.
BASE jumping, also sometimes written as B.A.S.E. jumping, is parachuting or wingsuit flying from a fixed structure or cliff. "BASE" is an acronym that stands for four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump: building, antenna, span, and Earth (cliff). Due to the lower altitudes of the jumps, BASE jumping is significantly more dangerous than skydiving from a plane. In the U.S., BASE jumping is currently regarded by many as a fringe extreme sport or stunt. In some jurisdictions or locations, BASE jumping is prohibited or illegal; in some places, however, it is permitted, like Perrine Bridge, in Twin Falls, Idaho.
This lady never had the idea to do this virtual simulation is somehow her dream come true.
There has been a lot of discussion about BASE jumping in the mainstream media of late. But what exactly is it and what does it entail? We'll help you sort it all out.
Ever wondered what it would feel like hurling yourself from a levitating building miles above the ground whilst surrounded by a neon dystopian futurescape? After leaping off a cliff, the jumper's wingsuit rapidly fills with air, so he or she can glide until reaching an altitude where it becomes critical to open a parachute, which then allows them to descend safely back to the ground. That is what this sweet lady demonstrated in this VR clip.
