    For your information, I'm absolutely not in the Virtual Reality (VR) HEADSET business, but take it from me, you should get one. Soon all the press will be using VR to tell stories, so get prepared for extraordinary experiences using your VR headset and your smart phone.

    Virtual Reality! It’s amazing! It’s terrifying! It’s the future! Nothing will ever be the same!” said The Huffington Post.

    Headsets range in price from $1.99 to hundreds of dollars. Remember the old adage, "You get what you pay for!" though. As a suggestion, the Google Cardboard for $15.00, or two for $25.00 with free shipping is a good headset to start off with. (No, I don’t own Google stock!)

    Yes, I just had a demo. I'm waiting till Iphone develops their version of one. It's still in development stage

    I can only recommend that our community not put off buying a headset, maybe a very cheap one, if you have a smart phone, just in case there is a story or stories coming out using VR technology that you might be interested in. That's all I can say right now. (A cryptic message, I know!)



    Barbara now you have got us all curious....hmmm. Interesting and cryptic,lol.

    I don't even know what this involves. A headset - is that like goggles?

    I remember Ray Kurzweil predicting that we would all use a Internet glasses by now. That didn't happen - yet. Is that like this?

    The singularity may be postponed rather than cancelled.

    We don't have a smart phone. We just have a run of the mill dumb phone. It has a camera on it but we have never used it. The news is bad enough I don't think I need to watch it with a VR. Plain old TV is just fine. I know this is against all those who like this kind of stuff but I would rather be outside in my garden. Sorry I will not be getting one any time soon. Nice idea but not for me. Happy gardening. Still Totally ADD

    Top ten reasons to own VR glasses

    9) JW Broadcast will be featuring a full 3D movie on that Generation Chart that David Splane presented

    8) New song books will feature a Karaoke style for VR devices

    7) Public Ministry VR goggles may be used to tune out some who you don’t wish to speak to

    6) They are great for those that like to sleep at meetings

    5) You can tell the Mother in law that the reason you are not listening to her is because you are doing your research.

    4) Great device for all those unmarried sisters since now they have a full life like imaginary husband they can view.

    The Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses is pleased to announce the introduction of the Virtual Reality Kingdom Hall. Over the next 12 months all congregations and meetings will be replaced with a virtual meeting. Your circuit overseer will advice you of the roll out.

    As kingdom halls and assembly halls will no longer be needed these dedicated assets will be sold off with the procedes going towards the worldwide work.

    Your brothers,

    World Headquarters of Jehovah's Witnesses

    Although I stand by my suggestion that those who have a smart phone invest in a VR headset, I just knew when I started this thread the posts would be interesting and it's turning out that way. I also had a feeling that certain posters would have a lot of fun with the subject and I'm certainly not disappointed.
