I am also really moved by this story, the amount that a single device can affect your entire life is hard to imagine. This is something you can enjoy immensely right now while the technology and community evolves. Hanging out with your friends in VR will be another awesome thing you can do together. At least in this area of your life, you can look forward to rapid advancements.
That's something virtual desktop/steam VR could use, A customizable house that you can build to your liking, control your avatar(from bed) around the space and so it feels like a virtual home or even a workshop where each area serves a purpose, you can walk from a 3d modeling bench straight to your programming bench all seamlessly. You body may get tired easily, but that won’t prevent you anymore from the ability to make your mind tired.
The Metaverse will let you experience world wonders but also new staggering wonders of the virtual world. I look forward to the day we head down to the local metaverse cafe(it’s all local) and meet up for a fake coffee one day. 🙂
