What It Is

According to the Verge, Cedar Point's new rollercoaster will be called the Valravn, and it will break records. It's 223 feet tall, and can travel 75 miles per hour. By itself, its an engineering marvel. But that doesn't matter unless it's fun to ride, and it's possible to preview what it will feel like through a dedicated app available for iOS and Android. You'll need a set of smartphone VR goggles.

The Implications

One application for VR is the ability to preview buildings before they're finished. Well, a roller coaster's a bit like a building -- that sends you on a trip with several Gs of force. If Cedar Point's VR app is successful, expect more engineering marvels to come with associated VR apps. Grab it now for iPhones and Android devices.
