Lol - damn, similar is happend to me. I was in ‘Pierhead Arcade’ and played with a little tank, wich I have won as price. And this littel sweet damn thing moved behind a counter… and this was so immersive, I tried to lean on the counter to look beneath… In this case, VR and RL was not coincident, in real I hit the table top with my head and was going down, and first thought was ‘damn, hopefully the vive was not smashed’, followed from a big laugh in some pain.

I’ve heard of people taking a hell of a fall when playing virtual pool, because they try to lean on the table.

:grin: yup, sound familiar. So fasr it’s only close to accident.
Especalliy the habbit to place the controllers on virtual; object is a my favorite one here.

Not got much to sit on, but that can be a dangerous one in the future,
What’s next a body suite with artificial muscles that allow you to sit in the air ?

Something like that. Or, @Philip’s ‘box’. That was an interesting device.
