#Welcome To the Future
Anyone who says that America is unquestioningly the greatest country in the world has to at least pause, at least fucking *pause* when they make that statement, given this new development. Fucking Hobbits are going to be loading up DroneMonsters that shall fly through the sky, flinging goddamn pizzas into everyone’s gullets from on-high. I’m ashamed, ashamed we are not doing that yet here.
Ain’t this some mash-up of atom-punk optimism and dystopian-rot wastelanding. The Ukrainian government is hoping to secure the funding to turn Chernobyl’s exclusion zone into a giant solar farm. So dope.
Some real retro-interface failed-state futurist porn, right here. Fucking Mr. Wizard, man.
The future is here! It’s just not evenly distributed. So says Billy Gibson. Well. I can confirm a couple of people who have received the future. These console cowboys have stolen more than 100 cars, using their leet hacker skills.
A tech war I did not know was being waged has come to an end. Vive owners will now be able to play Rift-exclusive titles on their headset. Which, I sort of imagine, benefits both companies.*
This is the future I wanted. This is the future I demanded.
Man, count me the fuck out of the VR game. At least for a bit, until the headsets drop in price. That’s, that’s fair, right?
So, I can’t just close my eyes, embrace how old I feel, and successfully wish VR away. That’s what it’s looking like. I can’t wish away a lot of things: my overeating, pee boners in the car during traffic, and now apparently virtual reality.
