VR. When you just don’t have enough shit holding up your television set, VR!
When game consoles and controllers and amiibos have all achieved a layer of dust, VR!
When your children already have a healthy dose of sunlight fear and societal misunderstanding, VR!
When you want to manage a constant timetable of allowed VR time …say it with me now.. VR!
Can you guess what item has joined our family entertainment rotation? That’s right, Nintendo NES!

If we train them early to see everyday jobs as a game, what possibilities will this open up for the future?! What can we make next, virtual chores? Cleaning toilets with an actual snake! Maybe make a dishwasher a là Flintstones and make it a dish-licking dinosaur?
Virtual marriage- fighting over the budget has never been quite so interactive! Changing the toilet paper/paper towel rolls with a stick of dynamite?
Virtual taxes. ..no clue how to make that fun, sorry.
The possibilities are endless!
