16 Experts Predict the Future of Virtual Reality
Remember this picture from a Virtual Reality conference which Mark Zuckerberg shared, and it went viral?
Some said the photo was creepy, like a glimpse into a dystopian future where people are cut off from the real world, opting instead to spend their time in VR.
Here’s what Mark had to say when people doubted the future of Virtual Reality:
“I think people tend to be worried about every new technology that comes along. Critics worry that if we spend time paying attention to that new kind of media or technology instead of talking to each other that that is somehow isolating. But humans are fundamentally social. So I think in reality, if a technology doesn’t actually help us socially understand each other better, it isn’t going to catch on and succeed.
You could probably go all the way back to the first books. I bet people said ‘why should you read when you could talk to other people?’ The point of reading is that you get to deeply immerse yourself in a person’s perspective. Right? Same thing with newspapers or phones or TVs. Soon it will be VR, I bet.
So, is Virtual Reality a “platform of tomorrow”?
