A friend of mine has been after me for a week to come to his house to check out the new Sony PlayStation VR (Virtual Reality) I'm not a gamer but let me tell you, this damn thing is off the charts. I probably sat for at least an hour and a half with the goggles on experiencing a few of the games that came with his unit. (VR World Package)
The first game Steve put me in was a Ocean decent in a shark cage. I'm a scuba diver and I felt like I was actually diving. The second game was an action packed ride in a van shooting bad guys off motorcycles and SUVs with an Uzi. (The London Heist)
The third game was an arcade style game where you are on a roller coaster shooting monsters and carnival targets. The ride was so trilling that it made me about half car sick. You will feel like you are actually on a roller coaster.
I left Steves right after playing this game and driving my car felt strange almost like I was still in the game. Totally Nuts.
Steve told me in a week or two Sony is coming out with a Moto Racer game. He's buying it and I can't wait to check it out.
If you get a chance to experience Sony VR do check it out. Here's a link that explains the games more in detail.
Have any of you guys played it yet?

Sounds pretty neat. I think there's definitely a huge potential for the VR market to do some good: medical (diagnosis, surgery, trauma), police and fire, mechanic work (diagnosis), etc.
However, one line really stuck out at me:
I left Steves right after playing this game and driving my car felt strange almost like I was still in the game. Totally Nuts.
If VR becomes prevalent, how do you think particular games (violent and/or pornographic) might have an effect in combination with the increase of psychological/spiritual/on-who-knows-what-drug society? Right now the delineation of reality vs games or movies is still somewhat visible. With VR, in combination with psychological and other issues, I fear it could become blurred beyond recognition for the more minor cases.

Any thoughts from that perspective?

I'm sure this technology will become prevalent and it's in its infancy. Scary. Steve said the porn industry is developing realities games as we speak and you know how much money they have to develop products. When a game can trick your mind into believing you are actually experiencing an event sales will explode.
You know people are going to let there young children play these games and I don't think it's health.

Don't I look stupid lol. I didn't realize it until Steve texted me these pictures a couple minutes ago.


If you look at the TV you can see the glove I'm wearing with the Uzi in my hand. The TV is only used as a monitor for bystanders to watch.
