Good and uplifting read....

First They Got Sick, Then They Moved Into a Virtual Utopia

Real-life Fran was a hiker and a dancer. But when Parkinson’s stole her mobility, she discovered a new home inside Second Life.

I can see the next round of high quality immersive worlds enhancing this much further....already my partner and I have eliminated some bucket list travel preferring instead the 4k version of a trip to the Galapagos or Antartica.

Drones will take this even further - offering us views we could not physically attain ( slow drone flights in high def are just completely immersive and mesmerizing

How much different is it watching a Norwegian fjord slip by from behind a cruise ship bridge or a 4k screen.....and the drinks are cheaper :cheers:

.....some disabled and sick may lead the way to an alternative, more sustainable virtual world for the many. :thumbup:

...only to find the nerd moved in fast there, then Google and Sony bought up all the virtual beachfront property leading to runaway virtual inflation, and now they don't have the income stream to stay connected.
