  1. I've already noticed the side effects of VR.
    I no longer get bored in the evenings is one,the other is I have somewhere to go that's not full of selfish c###s who think they're nice people,what's happened to society?
    Finally its great for when the weathers bad 🙂

  2. Love the negative comments about research on here. They don't realise this tech wouldn't even exist without research in the first place. Most technology also continues to be researched after it is available to the public, so we can understand it better

  3. The positive effects of the Superman test doesn't sound like it would be because of the VR experience, I've had the exact same feeling after walking out of a Marvel movie. What would be more interesting like they mention would be the lasting effects, but also whether aesthetics/realism and having such a narrow experience in VR compared to a movie is also a factor. 100% we need to be a look at negative experiences as well, what affect will a horror/killing simulation have on an individual.

  4. VR is bullshit, all these channels that talk about VR and bullshit too. All they talk about is other people doing things with VR or talk about other people doing experiments. Most of the stuff VR is used for is really not positive to us. Playing video games where you get to feel what it's like to kill others is really a negative than a positive. After all the end result is one gets so hooked on VR they put on so much weight they are unable to move from their monitor.

  5. FACT….ALL OF THIS….( SCI-FI NEW TECHNOLOGY )….IS HAVING A….( 99% NEGATIVE EFFECT ON HUMANS IN 2017 )….AND….( 3017 )….I DON'T THINK THE HUMAN RACE WILL MAKE IT THAT FAR TO….( 3017 )….ALL THIS EVIL SCIFI TECHNOLOGY THAT HUMANS MAKE….WONT ALLOW….( HUMANS TO LIVE ANOTHER 1,000 THOUSAND YEARS ON EARTH )

  6. Well, the negative psychological effects aren't exactly worth studying as it is. There are just some people who fail to keep reality and fantasy separate. That's not going away with any new media. It also isn't any worse with any new media. It also isn't caused by the media. It is caused by people's inability to keep the distinction clear.

    Claiming any new media causes aggression is akin to claiming something else now causes cancer under the list of everything in the world causing cancer.
