    What could be safer than putting on a VR headset, grabbing a motion controller by the wrist strap, and then twirling it above your head to take flight?

    WyVRn developer Hamster Ball recently showcased this frankly terrifying new form of VR locomotion, which allows you to whirl a hammer and lift off just like everyone’s favorite Norse Avenger, Thor. You know, Thor? The guy that can fly by having his hammer pull him off (Ragnarok pun intended)? He has a tendency to break everything in sight and, well, this little experiment seems like it has the potential to do the same. And we thought Echo Arena was a safety hazard.
