3 Instant Takeaways

    1. VR may not replace 2-D or 3-D but it has its own potential. A VR meeting feels more real and immediate than a video call or phone call. The brain can be easily tricked (think of a magician’s illusions) and VR works at relatively low resolution because the brain ‘helps’ it along.
    2. Will VT become the most important media in the future? Kam thinks not. Books still have their place. Television still has its place. Going to a live event still has its place. But VR will find its way into all these areas, and transform our current experience because it provides a live 360-degree stream that nearly replicates reality. (Or provides an alternative reality.)
    3. Imagine VR communion. It’s possible to create a VR experience where you take communion at the last supper. You could feel as if you were really there, participating, eating the bread with the other disciples. These are the kinds of things that Kam and others on the cutting edge of VR technology are thinking about.
