Watch: What It’s Like To Experience Lag In Real Life

[Click here to view the video in this article]

Swedish fiber broadband provider ume.net, who previously showed us what it’s like to experience lag, has followed up with a second experiment.

To find out if people could withstand it in real life, it hooked several participants up to a brain sensor helmet that delivered doses of lag as they played a game of pong.

Their challenge was to keep calm, or the lag would increase. Due to the lag, the individuals were unable to play properly and became visibly frustrated.

The video was created to promote ume.net’s fiber broadband service.

Check it out below.
