What is an Oculus Rift Doing in a Namibian Airport?


Greetings from southern Africa, where Cortney has spent the last two weeks having meetings, shooting 360 footage of some amazing and terrifying animals for an upcoming project, and enjoying a whole new world of meats. But the best part of this trip came in the most unexpected place -- a tiny (seriously, small town bus station size) airport in Namibia. A kindly regional private jet pilot noticed her struggling to set up her SIM card and offered to help; in return, she thought she'd impress him and let him play with her Gear headset. The pilot informed her that as nice as that was, he was already an old hand at VR, as his tiny airline did in-flight training in a Rift (alas, he couldn't sneak her past security to see it in the office).
