What our survey respondents are saying…

I would like to see VR go mainstream outside of gaming (nothing against gaming!) where it really can change the world for the better.

Jason Jerald Co-founder of NextGen Interactions and author of The VR Book

I think about creating an externally-minimal, internally-maximal lifestyle through VR/AR. I think about how we're going to save the first manned mission to Mars from death from boredom with VR. Can we create an experience of social interaction, work, exercise, entertainment, etc. that is rich enough to sustain a person's creativity on a long-range trip to another planet? Can we create a BioDome for the mind?
