Thats pretty cool, especially for the kids, such as the one mentioned in the article with leukemia, who really wants to participate and learn. Now he
can and does. He is able to interact with teachers and other kids.
But I cant help but wonder where this technology will eventually go. If it could eventually, of course after they're made commercially and much
cheaper, become a mandatory thing. I think of myself in school, several years back. 80s- early 90s. I remember when I was sick, the ONLY positive
about it, was not having to deal with school. Get to relax, watch TV, and worry about making yourself better. Of course after a few days, you would
have to get caught up on all your homework, but that was worth it. I'm just imagining in the future how bad this could suck for some kids, not only
are they sick and stuck in bed, but still have to listen to each of the teachers all day long.
