One day, we ll have an entire Tumblr account for hilarious VR accidents, but until then, George Takei s Facebook account will have to do.

Takei, the Star Trek alum and current boss of sharing things on Facebook, recently shared a video of a man attempting to conquer a virtual cliff while inside an Oculus headset; it didn t go well.

While climbing up a virtual mountain, the unnamed user had an unexpected fall — both in-game and in real life.

The fall was a minor one, and it seems nothing is hurt but his pride.

The spill does outline a significant danger for virtual reality in that it might sometimes be too immersive.

An immersive experience is what it s all about, so it s hard to suggest companies dial it back.
