Real life hasn’t been that much fun lately, right? With your job, Thanksgiving, and Tax Day (I mean, that thing's always around the corner), wouldn’t be nice to just get away for a while? Check out into a different reality.

Well, science is currently working on that, and our old friend Conan O’Brien got to try it out for himself. Over at the YouTube’s VR Lab in New York City, Conan took virtual reality for a test drive, performing his normal routine of yelling at employees, co-workers, robots, and gym coaches in the new digital world, on Conan last night.

This video should have you very excited for the future, where you can harass robots and eat corn on the cob sandwiches. Watch the video and you’ll get it.

The Utah-based company plans to use VR headsets, body monitors, and high-quality prosthetics to create digital interactive worlds. It's obviously still in its infancy, but if they pull it off nerds around the country will line up to make their Skyrim dreams a reality.

And at the very least, it can't be any worse than Dactyl Nightmare: 



For those of you that weren't alive in the early 90s, Dactyl Nightmare was an early lesson in crushing disappointment wherein you strapped yourself to a massive VR rig and shot things with your crossbow. Chances are it was a stealth project to make kids never excited about the future or technology ever again.
