I don't buy isolated VR as a learning tool for wide use.
I have had an examiner on a recent patent application who was not knowledgable in the required physical-geometric structures.
She insisted that a straight object was actually a helix! My patent attorney and I explained the difference, but she and her boss ignored the plain geometric truth and refused to budge and threw out my claims.
I'ld rather have a high level of competence and accept some level of goofing off. You do need a break once in awhile to stay sane.
Science Fiction author? At least that is what I thought.
Evidence from our oribital flights gives plenty of evidence of tissue damage in space from both lack of gravity and radiation. We can't reasonably do much about the radiation without having massively heavy spacecraft which does not seem practical.
Well, the MS lock-in may just be starting to fray enough to make a difference.
No functioning computers would exist without "Science." Science is verifiable and reproducible often in a variety of ways, or it is not "science."
Torture is OK in Iran.
Another thing which I have not seen discussed is the mutation of the biota that humans carry into outer space.
We put these microbes in zero gravity, far higher background cosmic radiatio & occassional Solar storm radiation.
It will not surprise me that they mutate as a result and I certainly don't have an idea how fast or what those mutations might do.
Well, dinosaurs did die out.
Where the biggest nuts rise to the top.
What? To who? When?
And which OS is designed in a more secure way to protect users?

We need to answer all the questions. Consumers really SHOULD know.
You can get "too smart" and they become difficult to use physically & mentally.
For over 20 years it has been discussed that it might be possible to get the genes into your lawn's Bermuda grass.
Then your gardener could really rake in the grass for real dough.
Not the least of which are illegal drugs and they wind up on the fingertips!
"macabre, consumer paradise" or monitored controlled populace?
Though not as colorful, you can now imagine what it was like for a pilot and copilot doing raids in WWII. Scaaaary!
