Virtual Reality for Smart Cities and Citizens
In a world that offers virtual experiences, how will society change? Imagine a world in which VR (virtual reality) technology enhanced and improved reality in urban planning and building, product design, education and training, and beyond. Imagine how seamless VR-enabled telecommuting and telepresence capabilities could change the way cities operate—for instance, by redefining the need for physical transportation systems—or alter the way humans engage in cultural experiences like art and music? Imagining the possibilities of virtual reality and its partner in crime, AR (augmented reality), isn’t the hard part, unfortunately. The hard part is making it real on a grand scale.
