#NowReading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. I don’t usually read science-fiction novels but this one caught my attention. The story happens in 2040, when a world-wide energy crisis brought the planet to a state of total chaos. In this world of uncertainty, violence and poverty, people had found an escape. The OASIS — a virtual reality headset with haptic gloves connected to the Internet. It had its very own parallel universe and had become a refuge for humans to live in. People had jobs in the OASIS, children attended school in the OASIS, friendships were created in the OASIS... Just like real world before it became literally hell on Earth.
I won’t go any further as I wouldn’t want to spoil the story, but it’s a fascinating read especially if you’re interested in VR and what it might (hopefully not) become!
