With the acquisition of Oculus VR by Facebook, Magic Leap by Google, and Microsoft’s announcement of Hololens, Virtual Reality seems to be the next frontier in consumer electronics, immersive entertainment, and the Apps industries. This new frontier will revolutionize the way we consume movies, video games and other forms of entertainment, the way we teach and learn, the way we take a break (holodeck, anyone?), and many other aspects of our life and work.
The distinguished TiE panel will discuss the state of Virtual Reality technologies and industry and discuss the future of this next frontier in revolutionary technology. The discussion will focus on the progress of the industry and products, differences between augmented reality and virtual reality, opportunities beyond the visual spectrum (auditory spectrum, for example), other industries that will benefit from virtual reality and the opportunities it presents for the ‘bleeding edge’ entrepreneurs.
