Obama trying VR headset with googly eyes proves he can make anything look cool

President Obama can make anything look great. Anything. Even a dorky VR headset.

At the Hannover Messe Industrial trade show in Hanover, Germany, Obama tried out a very special VR headset. How special? It had googly eyes on it. Yes, silly, adorable, googly eyes on the outside of the headset.

It’s pretty clear Obama rocked this googly eyed VR headset like a boss.

The VR headset was one of several new technologies he tried at the world’s largest industrial trade show.

The headset, while not as advanced as the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, is a more sophisticated version of Google Cardboard.

IFM Electronic, the company that makes the headset, demoed a 3D picture that “looked like a color-coded heat map” taken from its world’s smallest 3D camera, according to a White House report.

The company’s CEO reportedly said Obama could use the headset, along with the camera, to “talk to his daughter virtually.”

“It’s a brave new world,” Obama replied. Indeed, Obama. Indeed.
