@Rolan7 That's literally wrong.
It doesn't use "Eu", it uses "Ou" meaning "Not" or "No".

"Extended to any perfect place by 1610s. Commonly, but incorrectly, taken as from Greek eu- "good" (see eu-) an error reinforced by the introduction of dystopia (by 1844)."

@Nilok Utopia doesn't mean "no place", it means "good place". "Eu" is "good", like a "eulogy". (no shade, interesting misconception, just want to correct it!)

I thought solarpunk was also a dystopia.

Am I the only one who remembers that Nintendo released a pair of goggles you shoved your face into that would permanently damage your eyes? I'm just leery of all these gaming head sets and the danger of permanent retinal damage that could come from just one offset setting.

Morgan forgetting that "Utopia" literally means "no-place", as it can't ever actually exist.

I'd like it more if it wasn't just an AR-display smartphone you wear on your face.

@rene_zaal: It's not. Apple is trying hard to sell it as something else but this is just a fancy VR set.

Honest question: How is this different from other VR sets? I think the glass can switch between screen and see-thru, and.. it can detect hand movement so it doesn't need physical controls? Then that would be cool.

The real question though, is what is Angie doing in VR?

A cyberpunk dystopia where we haven't fixed our battery issues, at that. Or perhaps that's a wanted part of the dystopia.

@Jerome, punk does not necessarily mean dystopia.
Punk means to differ from/reject the current societal norms.
This holds in every form of the word: clothing, music and concatenations.

@Jo, I still find it stupid when people talk to their earbuds. It just looks to me like they have a psychosis.

Of course she knows what solarpunk is.

It annoys me that the ****punk has lost it's meaning. The first part is the estethic the second part is the culture, Cyberpunk is a dystopic stratified society based on the cybernetics, a Solarpunk society would be a dystopic stratified society based on clean living, access to greenery?

Spellcasting is also waving your arms to move invisible stuff but does it look silly? So we just need some traces in the air left after your hands/fingers (visible to the others), and the problem is solved.
