Immersive technologies can transport human beings pretty easily. Realising how easy it is to take someone’s brain and convince them that they are doing something else, are somewhere else or feeling something, is pretty powerful. It has the ability to educate exponentially quicker than other methods of technology and it can make things feel more real than anything else. Recognizing how powerful that is, you know it’s here to stay, it just needs to be taken seriously.
I have been giving a lot of thought to what I believe is the next great disruptive wave for all of us. The next great disruptive game changer is AR/VR and MR and discrete immersive surround sound rendered on headphones. Think about it! Surround for every woman and man, on your cell phone, tablet, or computer. It will be totally portable and simple.
