If you are curious about virtual and mixed reality - what is it, why is it important, and whether it's here to stay - join me as I open Tech It Out 2016 for Women in Telecommunications. The talk presents 3 big ideas on our future with virtual reality in it.
As we turn away from the scrolling, news-feed information age toward a fluid, immersive experiential age, the time has come to think about the role virtual experiences will play in our lives. How will the most immersive technology yet to cross our path affect our global consciousness? How will it change the way we define 'real life?' Will it elevate empathy for different cultures and people? Or will we find ourselves socially isolated? Who is adopting it now? These topics and more are explored here.
