I feel Augmented Reality is a much safer and healthier option than VR. Somehow I get the feeling that the "escape" part of the use of the technology is too much of a temptation for some people and will end up causing more problems than what it solves.

It’s easy to see fake worlds now without any gear. Just look around.

Rather hang out with people in the real world.

I wonder if long term usage of similar head-gear could lead to neck injuries, or even eye injuries. Time to read the small print ?

I'm sure it's written to remove as much liability as possible.

My neck has been known to get tired after using my son's Quest for a while. It's still fairly heavy on the head. I could see it causing headaches, but it could also maybe make for a stronger neck.
