Is Virtual Reality Becoming reality, with Mary Duda, Virtual Reality ExpertThe Future
Films such as Ready Player One feature a time in the future in which our only solace from the pressure of life is to retreat to a virtual world. With the introduction of Oculus, Google Cardboard and other VR devices, the time has come to humanity to give serious consideration to how VR is to be integrated into our organic life on Earth. While VR used for education can vastly speed up the learning time of a subject, people can – and will – become increasingly disassociated from one another, including sexual relationships. Mary Duda has spent the past 3 decades in the field of animation and art studying, and developing, effects through VR technologies. We discuss the ethical implications as to how to best engage with this rapidly emerging reality. For more information about Mary, visit Scioart.com.
