Writer Carino Chacano spoke to Mark Bolas for her cover story on virtual reality. She wrote that Bolas began creating rudimentary virtual worlds 20 years ago and recalls them as fondly as a European backpacking trip he took. “I’m nostalgic for worlds. To me, those were very real places. They don’t exist anymore because the computer’s gone, that head-mount’s gone,” he said. “I’m not the only researcher to say that. I’ve talked to some other people from the old days, and they’re, like, ‘Yeah, I miss my worlds.’”
