Virtual reality is getting better and better each year. Many gaming companies are now talking about the next evolutionary step in VR and the next generation of this computer technology, but they are not just talking about gaming, Indeed, they are also planning on using this computer technology for education, reducing the psychological problems of PTSD, high-tech communication, and even space communities.
One advanced thinker suggests that we build Virtual Reality Urban environments for all, virtual reality habitats, where you can create your own world, any world. If so, one must ask if such thinkers have given any thought as to which culture or nationality might have the best chance in accepting this computer technology in a sample program, and which cultures might have the toughest time accepting it?
This might be important as human culture seems to dictate much of their perceptions. Such pre-conceived attitudes could be drastically different with humans from different regions or mindsets, so where would we put such an urban VR system? Some may even deem it against their religion.
So where should the studies or test projects be located; underground, isolated, or would you put the experiment close to the resources and money of an urban human area? If it were put into a large city, then it might catch some media PR buzz, helping the project or it could backfire, especially if things are not well-liked at first or if it gets poor ratings while the bugs are still being worked out.
Perhaps, you are aware of the Biosphere II project outside of Tucson, it didn't work out, but it is interesting the psychological issues of its failure. A few people inside had personality conflicts that led to psychological problems in the confined environment. It became quite a mess. Think on this.
