Image of Asia: The disorienting view of virtual reality

In this photo by Wally Santana, a video game player experiences a virtual reality headset at the Taipei Game Show in Taiwan, which attracted more than 130 game companies and gaming teams from 24 countries. The companies unveiled their latest games and gadgets, and enthusiasts got a chance to sample the new releases. Many of the players who tried the virtual reality headsets had to adjust their balance and co-ordination in the initial moments of wearing the headset because the scenes were so lifelike they were disorienting.
