I’ve been using them for years.
This past month, network TV programs have been clogged with commercials for some high-tech electronic goggles.
They apparently convey sights and sounds to evoke a sense of being somewhere else — even someplace imaginary.
That’s nice. But it seems so limited. Only sights and sounds. No virtual taste, texture or scent. And the price? Ouch!
I’ll stick with my traditional virtual reality devices.
Yesterday, one took me to a secret bio research lab in the California desert. Another transported me to a New York City police precinct in 1946. And today, during the war of 1812, I sailed in a 32-gun Navy frigate around Cape Horn.
At their best, my traditional virtual reality devices stimulate all five senses.
At their best, my traditional virtual reality devices stimulate all five senses. And since they’ve been produced for centuries, they’re available everywhere, in countless varieties, at amazingly low cost.
Maybe this Christmas, you’ll want to give your loved ones some of these devices.
They’re called books.
