There are many reasons to avoid virtual reality. First, I think it’s a waste of time. Second, there are the injuries. You’ve probably seen the many, many videos of people running into walls, breaking their flatscreens, and outright eating it on the floor when playing this stuff. It’s entertaining for us to watch, sure—but now we have a new problem: gang rape. It’s not real gang rape, but virtual reality, like the real world, allegedly has sexual predators who attacked a woman within a minute of logging into the Meta’s Horizon Worlds. I’ll let you do the rest of the background research regarding this…world but three or four male avatars attacked this woman which prompted a personal boundary to be established so other users can be protected from this virtual…gang rape activity (via NY Post):
Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta is adding a feature to combat virtual-reality harassment days after a woman said she was “virtually gang raped” in the company’s metaverse.
The feature, called “personal boundary,” will prevent other users’ virtual avatars from “invading your avatar’s personal space,” the company formerly known as Facebook said in blog post on Friday.
The feature will be rolled out within Meta’s Horizon Worlds and Horizon Venues virtual reality worlds starting on Friday.
“If someone tries to enter your Personal Boundary, the system will halt their forward movement as they reach the boundary,” Meta said. “We believe Personal Boundary is a powerful example of how VR has the potential to help people interact comfortably.”
