Virtual Reality is so HOT right now

Virtual Reality (VR) is so HOT right now

 

Hi Online Pilot,

Virtual Reality (VR)¬†is so HOT right now!¬†Let’s go exploring and you’ll get why ~

Imagine… you’re discussing a new idea¬†with colleagues and someone¬†says¬†“that’s great! You’ve nailed it!” and high-fives you.

Now¬†imagine…. it feels like¬†everyone is there,¬†in the same room, in the¬†same building yet¬†your colleagues are located in different continents, at home, at another office¬†…and the¬†high five feels real.

This sense and feeling can now be purchased in the form of a VR unit that costs a few thousand dollars. Like smartphones, as the tech becomes commonplace it will be less important where professionals are located.

Workplaces will change a lot in the next 2-10 years as more tech is integrated in what we do. Watch these fascinating videos to keep your thinking up to date:
* See the technology that has you feel¬†that¬†you’re high fiving your (far away) colleague. (5 mins)
* Two fascinating videos on what’s coming, including ‘wet tech’. Huge kudos to Bryan Johnson and his team – both of these episodes are great. (11 mins)
* Tech forces that will shape our future by Kevin Kelly. (55mins)

If you like thinking long-term, here’s¬†Elon Musk’s recent interview where he¬†refers to reality being hard to distinguish in the future owing to¬†virtual and augmented reality¬†(4 mins). Similarly, Matt Damon at MIT 3 days ago¬†referred to the¬†Simulation¬†Theory¬†(from 5:44 minute mark).

Remember, you can imagine the world you wish to live in and create it.
