Humans get addicted to games sometimes, so how can we not get addicted to VR, which is many times better than traditional gaming.
When you start to hold meetings, play games, and work in different places with this technology, you cannot prevent yourself to take it into your life.
In my previous post, I explained how immersive technologies have the potential to replace social media? Some are against the usage of social media, and some are in favor of social media.
But, social media influences our lives. If you are sitting in the room and there is no one to talk to you, you will pick up the mobile and start to use social media. We will never look for any other option to make ourselves busy.
Some people prefer to use social media instead of watching TV. These things show how we are attached to these things, and if most people say that it can replace social media, it could be a next-level thing having more influence on our daily lives.
Now, we can say without any doubt that VR can make us addicted. Let’s discuss the things in detail.
Can you get addicted to VR?
VR gaming competitions will be held all across the country as well as international competitions.
A large number of social media users will start to use it to spend their time more efficiently. Many other applications on the internet will be affected when this technology can be completely available in the market.
Now, work mode is changing. Companies are changing their process to remote workers. Maybe, when VR technology may complete, it can change the way of work.
Because we can take meetings easily and do other tasks with this, in future, people can add more tasks to make the work easier and change the thighs for the workers.
So, what do you think? We cannot prevent ourselves stop using VR headsets. Once they are available to us in full form, we can become addicted to them.
You need to draw a line for using different tech products. It is simple to figure out what products add value to our lives. Today, most tech products are capturing people.
Not all, but before any purchase, see the consequences of the specific products.
The human mind is a powerful thing. If you do not allow anything to control you, nothing can make you addicted. Strong will is required. Use any tech product you want, but with a limit.
Make sure it will not affect your progress. You can enjoy the features of products, and your work without falling into an addiction to that product.
What happens if you use VR too much?
Your work will go down. If your family is dependent on you and spends all the time on VR gaming or other things, it can be a bad thing.
There are types of people who are using specific technology too much. Some use it for their benefit. The benefit like using a product that can help in growing their businesses.
Using a product too much can help in going into a professional career like gaming, and many other things.
Another type is that people will use a specific technology without thinking about the last point and for entertainment purposes. They want to become addicted to the specific technology.
Your health will be affected in both cases, whether you are a type 1 person or type 2 person. You can get headaches, eye issues, eye strains, and many other things.
But, the loss-related work can only happen to type 2 people. In this world, you are paid when you provide quality. If you are spending more time on other tech products, can you provide quality?
A person will start to cut OFF from the outside world. These things can be acceptable when you get some output in work. If you get no profit, but only loss, it is time to manage your work efficiently, and give only require time to the specific thing.
Can virtual reality cause depression?
Although there is no proof of depression in virtual reality, some health problems take place while using this technology.
But, if you remain cut from society and do not get anyone to share your thoughts or feelings. It can create a problem for you.
Being alone can be a reason to become depressed. You cannot get happy by being alone. Everyone face problem in life, but when they sit with people and talk about different things, the problem load decreases.
If you are using VR technology, make a timetable to exercise, and sit with family or friends. Learn to sit with professionals who can do productive discussions.
Using Virtual reality technology 24/7 is not a good thing. When your kids are playing in front of you, it will be another level of satisfaction. You will not get depressed by socializing yourself.
