THE GROWTH OF VR IS NOW A REALITY

While science fiction novels such as Ready Player One have long predicted the growth of VR, it’s only now that the software is really beginning to take off. Apple has announced it’s working on a headset capable of running both AR and VR technology, to be released in 2020, CNET reports. The headset would be completely untethered to a computer or smartphone, and feature an 8K display (higher resolution than the best TVs available today). Facebook and Google have also recently announced significant spending on VR.
