The AR Field is Moving Fast into VR

The AR field is moving fast. What was augmented reality is transitioning into something new, akin to fluid reality.

These products are but a few years away (well, we’ll see how that goes :slight_smile: ) But, the takeaway is that the platforms to use such gear are self-oriented. It is going to take a while before platforms will be able to support the different formats. I can see Windows attempting that since Microsoft has the resources to both partner and execute it. Will Apple embrace interoperability? Or will it be iVR only.
