Virtual Reality

Everyone has pretty much heard of VR(Virtual Reality) from a movie, a technology trade-show, etc. For those that don't know, this is a computer-simulated environment that can simulate physical presence in places in the real world or imagined worlds.

What makes this tech so special? Well, it is the latest and biggest thing to hit tech lately. you can now own your very own VR headset for as little as $20 if you have an update-to-date smartphone. That's right cadets, it's called Google Cardboard.

I have yet to try this new innovation(I ordered one a few days ago.), but the feedback from other users is astounding. Go ahead and check YouTube for "Google Cardboard reactions" and check it out for yourself.

There is even a bigger player in the VR market called Oculus Rift. that unit is still in development and may cost around $200 once it is released for commercial use. Here is a video of some of the people who have seen it in action:

I can not help but wonder what this kind of tech would do for paranormal investigating. Would be helpful? Or cause possibly cause issues for the field?

I think a bigger question would be this... What would our world be like after this has been released upon the public? Have we not turned into couch potatoes as it is? It may be a good time to start worrying about humanity and where we are heading... As if we didn't have enough reasons to do that already.
