People are playing VR tennis against Sharapova

I didn’t get a chance to go the U.S. Open and put on an HTC Vive headset and play tennis against Maria Sharapova.

But I’ve been following the news coverage, and can’t wait until something like this comes to a virtual reality arcade in my area — this doesn’t look like something that would make for a successful in-home experience, at least not in the foreseeable future.

Read a great review of the experience here in Mashable, or watch a “making of” video below.
