On a Christmas visit with his grandmother, Mark Nutt set 88-year-old Marie up with her first virtual reality experience. It was a roller coaster simulation and I think it’s safe to say Marie loved it.

I can’t even remember!

As a passenger, you can pretty much do anything but drive: Sit back with a good book, get some work done on the computer, or sneak in a nap.
