    Some would say that Words can not describe how VR has touched the lives of so many people, the same can be said for nuclear power and the atomic bomb and it's devastation, here is an in depth article about how a native Elder Australian of the outback is first introduced to the testing of the atom bomb in Australia "one of two major ground-level nuclear tests performed at Maralinga, in South Australia. "I thought it was the spirit of my gods rising up to speak with me. And the water holes boiled," he says in the film as the user take his position through a VR headset, watching the mushroom cloud rise". This is something so devastating and to hear this man reaction from seeing it in VR for the first time is something the whole world needs to see and read!

    This is really what VR was meant to do. Express a story in a way that speech and music cannot.

    This is the sort of thing that would get me using VR on a regular basis. And have excellent applications in school.

    Something tells me we are going to be seeing VR issued to schools all over the world in the not too distant future.
