Hello, I am Carlos Villaruiz, this is the story of how I realized the reality that we live in the year 2050. It is not uncommon for people to use their virtual reality headsets for vacations, in the last 10 years it has become such a current product that everyone has one, displacing smartphones. Thanks to the metaverse system you can do everything sitting at home, this year my family decided to connect to the beach in my city, I went in person with my glasses on while all the others waited for me there.

We spent a pleasant afternoon with the family, the beach was full, the sun was shining, the children were playing and everything was colorful, at one point, sand got into the strap of my helmet, when I took it off to clean it I saw a reality that I had not seen in a long time, a gray beach with dirty sand and the beach was full, but not with people, but with drones.
