Some Were Not Falling For Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality has actually been around since the 1970s and early 1980s. This was mostly in arcades at places like your local mall. It became so impactful that Back to the Future II (1989) felt it would have a big role in our society by 2015. They were not too far with this.
However, author Howard Rheingold wasn’t a big fan of it. He felt people were not considering that actions in VR could mirror real life. He once asked: “If you are in a virtual world and you have a model of your office and you pick up a virtual shotgun and blow your boss away because it might be amusing, then does that blur the line between activities you do in fantasy and the activities you do in real life?”
