The Oculus Rift was on the Jimmy Fallon Show, but how do you show virtual reality on T.V.?

Oculus Rift, the internet’s favorite virtual reality headset peripheral, made a brief appearance on late night T.V. last Thursday courtesy the Jimmy Fallon show. Glowing hands-on reports from CES 2013 have attested that exploring a three-dimensional space with this strange gadget makes players giddy. But as you might imagine, a device where all the amazement goes on on the inside of a box that’s strapped to your forehead doesn’t exactly lend itself to being shown on television. 

If I as a games blogger was left scratching my head, imagine how confused the rest of the world must have been. This isn’t the fault of the Oculus Rift — there’s a bigger problem at work.
