VIRTUAL-REALITY

A paradigm shift is coming and you will not be able to escape it.

Back in the day when I was hacking around and using University computers (unbeknownst to them, shhhh..) I came across the first web browser. I knew the world was going to change.

Went to work the next day at my job all aglow with having seen the future and wanting to tell everybody about it. I got glazed looks and in short order, dismissal. It's hard to imagine something without experiencing it.

Now take what you know about how the Internet turned out and try to imagine sliding on a virtual reality device. You will be immersed in a 3D world, a virtual world. One where you can do and be anything you want.

Reality is never going to be the same. Just as the Internet has changed the way people think, VR will be bigger. Much bigger.

So where are we at with this? When is it coming? It's already here. But like the fledgling days of the Internet we have to reach a certain point before we can look back one day and say "Oh yeah, this is when everything changed."

How likely is is that you will do VR? Inevitable, and it'll happen much quicker than what it took the Internet to happen.

They even put Stephen Spielberg to work on a movie about it.

And check out people's reactions to the first generation of VR headsets.

Future VR headsets won't be much more than sunglasses. They will allow you to do and be just about anything you want. So just imagine doing these things from home....

  • Being in and taking part in a movie not just watching it.
  • People in a retirement home climbing Mt. Everest.
  • Sitting in front row seats at a sports game, in another country.
  • Sitting next to an actress in a talk show.
  • Your child sitting in a rural schoolroom and from Abraham Lincoln is teaching.
  • On the job training. Before you ever apply for a job.

You'll be able to experience just about anything from your living room. Hang tight, the future is on its way and it is very very cool.
