Let CNN’s Brian Stelter Show You How Cool You Will Look Watching Debate in Virtual Reality


CNN––lover of all things virtual––is taking things to the next level tomorrow night by giving viewers the opportunity to watch the first Democratic debate in virtual reality. Yes, you’ll be able to feel like you’re really there in the room with Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and other people you haven’t bothered to learn the names of yet.

CNN is all in on showing off this technology, for as Chris Moody explained to Brooke Baldwin this afternoon how the virtual debate will work, footage of a model played on the other side of the screen demonstrating how cool you will look watching the virtual debate:

Actually, I tell a lie. That’s not a random model, that’s CNN’s senior media correspondent and Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter:

Yes, probably both.

Watch the video above and I defy you to question how cool it would be to watch the debate like that, via CNN.

UPDATE –– 4:31 pm EST: Hi, Brian:

Stelter’s interview above with Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey actually provides interesting information about the technology, so watch that if you actually want to learn something and not just join in the snark.
