Virtual and augmented reality are popular and people are showing interest in the technology. Although, there are concerns that this much virtual imagery will have a negative affect on the human eye and mind. Some people say that the growth of virtual reality will lead to "too much" VR, which would have a negative effect on people.
" People will become addicted to it, just like they become addicted to the Internet, social media and reading for that matter."
Freeman says that this technology is not a good or bad thing. He says, "I am simply trying to give this new reality form and expose the ontological issues it raises."
An issue that concerns him is, " if artists and activists choose not to pursue what virtual reality becomes.", By doing this, the technology will fall into the wrong hands, "pornographers, propagandist and profiteers."
With any new invention, there are always pros and cons but the growth of technology seems to be doing more good than bad. Professionals of different industries see potential in the technology and intend to use it.
The future of virtual reality still has many unanswered questions, on its affect on people and other concerns. For now, people might need to adjust because this medium is expanding and will be with us for a while.
