We jumped from the tallest building in the world wearing a VR headset

Burj Khalifa and HTC have partnered to create Mission 828, a virtual reality adventure installed in the observatory deck on the 125th floor of Burj Khalifa

The mission, if you choose to accept, takes you to the top of Burj Khalifa intercept a satellite and then jump down. If that sounds familiar, it's because it looks a lot like the plot of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, where Tom Cruise performed a similar trick.

The whole experience has been recreated by Burj Khalifa and we experienced it with an HTC Vive Pro Thanks to HTC and Burj Khalifa. It has worked incredibly well and makes you think twice before jumping, even if you are fully aware that it is virtual reality.

Watch the video below with caution in case you are afraid of heights.
