Time Magazine's Virtual Reality Cover Spawns Hysterical New Meme (Huffington Post)

The Time VR cover story is behind its paywall, but HuffPo pulled together a handy roundup of the cover art reinterpretations; also see Debate Rages Over Whether Or Not TIME's Oculus Cover Has Killed VR (Forbes) and 11 Things We Learned By Trying Every Virtual Reality Headset Out There (Time -- not paywalled)

"Time's newest cover was supposed to show off the wonders of cutting-edge virtual reality (VR). Instead, it gave the magazine a lesson in the time-tested art of Photoshop. 

The cover features an image of Palmer Luckey, inventor of the Oculus Rift virtual reality device, apparently consumed by some VR moment -- and it spawned instant ridicule on the Internet."
