There’s a future for boredom in the age of immersive fun
Augmented reality advances are creating new ways of forgetting what is real but also of getting bored
Apple’s announcement of Vision Pro, a headset that will make videos resemble real life, gives me hope as I look forward to the future of wasting time. I do not call it ‘leisure’ or ‘relaxing after a hard day’s work’ or ‘me-time’ or any such comforting nonsense. Entertainment is not entirely a waste of time but mostly it is, and it is for that reason that I find it entertaining.
