f Are you ready for the 2016 release of Virtual reality glasses for the general public use?
Well I did some research about this icredible object and till now I have discovered that the merit for it goes to the young Luckey Palmer who was the first to manage to reduce the effect of nausea when moving in the virtual reality thus making it finally accessible.

The Monotony of Sleep and Sleeplessness
Shelly and Courbet, for example, are two who understood that sleep was another form of historical time – that its withdrawal and apparent passivity also encompassed the unrest and inquietude of becoming that was essential to the nascence of a more just and egalitarian future. Now, in the twenty-first century, the disquiet of sleep has a more troubling relation to the future. Located somewhere on the border between the social and the natural, sleep ensures the presence in the world of the phasic and cyclical patterns essential to life and incompatible with capitalisme monotony of sleep and sleeplessness
