The Virtual Reality craze is taking off. VR is no longer just about teleporting yourself inside a video game to battle ferocious monsters and diabolic villains. In the not-so-distant future you might be able to take vacations, walk a day inside someone else’s shoes, viewing the world as they world, or share an intimate experience as you would in person – all from the comfort of your own home. Literally everything you do today could ultimately be inside a VR experience. But…what does that mean for humanity as people get more used to experiencing the world from their VR chair in their basement? What happens to the tangible world as we know it? Real human connections? Reproduction? Basic human needs? Life itself? Could this be the beginning of the end?
