With Virtual Reality (VR) Virtually here, we're about to experience forms of reality that challenge perceptions..
This Clip is a really good example of the kind of Games we're about to experience.. If you can call it gaming, because VR is placing the gamer in the game and essentially twisting & challenging your perceptions..
For the benefit of those with low bandwidth, The Video shows someone playing a Video Game in a Virtual reality environment.. Essentially a game within a Game.. And Horror game at that.. A game within a game created the illusion that the game was on a Virtual TV set, but the reality of the game was that the Player was Inside the middle of the game.. The Player is isolated, playing a game, but inside a game.. The illusion is a 360 degree reality, and the players focus is on a game on a TV inside the game.. When playing the game inside the game there is no way the player can reaffirm physical reality, and the virtual reality is accepted as true.. It's scary stuff when you think about it. Language get's a bit fresh, but the poster gives a good glimpse and rundown of what the game does to his consciousness.
The way I figure it, this new Medium, Virtual Reality, is going to seriously challenge, peoples perceptions.. it's going to do a lot of damage, and a lot of the video clips and reviews I've watched lately all seem to point to the same conclusion.. That people are going to get addicted to this.. And as is typical of humanity, we're going to abuse it. Which is a shame really, because personally I can't wait, and I'm going to order a set myself.. Personally I think it has the potential to enhance Dreams and Consciousness.. But it's probably going to do as much harm as it does good..
Anyway.. I posted for thoughts...
What do ya'll think about Virtual Reality?
