Couple get engaged using VIRTUAL REALITY

A tech-mad couple believe they are the first people in the world to get engaged - using VIRTUAL REALITY technology.Dean Sharp, 33, pre-recorded a video which he used to tell Kamila Sobczak, 38, how much he loved her.Dean, a printer, sprung his surprise proposal to Kamila when she and daughter Zuzanna, 13, returned to their home in Swadlincote, Derbys., after a shopping trip.Little did she know, Dean had invited family and friends to the house, who were hiding while he asked her to pick up the VR headset.While she watched the heartwarming video of Dean talking about their relationship, the guests quietly got the living prepared with flowers and champagne.When the video finished, Kamila took the goggles off and was met by Dean wearing a suit and holding a ring before going down on one knee.Touching footage shows the moment Kamila, who has been with Dean for eight years, say "I do".Dean said: "I wanted to do it because it hasn't been done before."I have a lot of time to think at work and I thought 'what's not been done?'"I was looking online and I couldn't find anyone who had proposed through VR."I used a £40, 360 degrees camera to create the video world."We put flowers up in the room and when Kamila took the headset off, she was like 'OK woah'."Kamila, who also works with Dean as a printer, said: "It was a massive surprise."Me and my daughter had been out at Ikea.

She tried to keep me out of the house as long as she could."I came home a bit annoyed and I asked Dean to cook the chicken for dinner."But Dean asked me to put on the goggles and when I started looking I saw him in the goggles."I thought 'where is this going?'.

I was really confused."When I took the goggles off and Dean's family and friends were there, I was shocked because I did not expect all of them to be there."I did not have a clue that was going on around me."It was a bit emotional.

I was speechless.

It's extra special knowing I'm the first person to be proposed to using VR."After accepting his proposal last February, the couple are now planning to get married in June.
