Remember the days when mom would remind us not to stay too close to the TV set when watching our favorite cartoons? Now, technology got us twisted with VR (Virtual Reality) sets that make us feel like we are in another environment.

My first VR experience was in Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress. I was on Geek Mode and I got to try different gadgets and the latest in technology. Remember I had the opportunity to interview the VIBE Product Manager.

The Lenovo Vibe K5 Series was recently launched in the Philippines. 
Watch my interview:
During the Philippine Launch of Lenovo VIBE K5 Series, they set up a gaming station and I got to play a racing game with VR set and controller. 

It was a different experience and I felt like owning the environment. Being a 90s kid, I got used to murdering the controller but you only need soft touch control to play the game. HAHA. I tried to contained myself and my screams while playing the game but it was totally amazing!

I can imagine bringing this set to long travels to watch movies. A perfect gadget if you want to have your me and alone-time.
