Virtual Reality Will Trick You In Ways You'll Like – and Ways You Won't

Imagine Virtual Reality 24/7 in a world that seems entirely real. This may be our reality in 5 short years.

“I think in five years or so VR is going to be a really prominent platform for experiences, for business, for commerce, entertainment, and social,” shares Kevin Kelly, author of The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future.

If you’ve tried VR gear, you see only the virtual world. With Mixed Reality, MR, you’ll see virtual objects in the real world. Both these experiences operate on a different part of the brain than when you watch a screen or Television claims Kelly. It’s like experiences lived in real time. This is the panacea for marketers, entertainers and social collaboration.
