Yesterday, I had a “Woah, I’m living in the future” moment.
Earlier this week, I saw a virtual reality unit finally came down in price enough that it was within my budget. I’ve been eyeing VR for years, so this sale came with a great deal of giddy excitement. The unit arrived yesterday, and I jumped to try it out.
I have a habit of doing more frequent RC’s whenever I am doing something new or exciting. I have always figured that something new and different is more likely to pop up in my dreams and be noticeable than boring daily routines. So, accordingly, I did several RC’s while setting up the VR and then while it was on.
Well, technically, once I put the visor on, looked at my hands, and the RC ‘failed’. My nose, too, wasn’t there.
I suppose technically, I shouldn’t call this a failed RC, because it did exactly what it was supposed to: show me that what I was witnessing was not true reality. It is called VIRTUAL reality, after all. And this was my “Woah, I’m living in the future”; I need to adjust my RC’s to be usable in more than just two (waking vs dreaming) realities.
So, does anyone have suggestions of RC’s that could be used in VR?
