The future is amazing.
I haven’t been writing much because my free time has been utterly consumed by a new toy. I bought a HTC Vive. Normally I am not an early adopter of technology. I get on the curve early, but not this early. However, after trying a VR headset for myself, I broke with my tradition of waiting for the next generation.
You see, it is the most immersive experience I’ve ever had. When I held a sword after defeating my enemies and a dragon flew overhead, I felt like a hero. When murderous robots flew out of the dark at me I panicked and called my brother to get on his headset and play multiplayer with me so I had someone to watch my back. And when three flying buzzsaw drones came at me I emptied my assault rifle at one, threw the empty gun at the other instead of reloading, and then screamed and hid under the table with my eyes closed until I died and it all went away.
