Below parts of the Article that is about the future:
Magic Leap hopes to master “mixed reality.” The VR startup’s light-field displays could eventually enable viewers to interact with both the real world and a virtual object projected on it.
The haptics problem—recreating touch and pressure in VR—could be solved by stimulating nerves with electrodes, building on research into muscle-propelled force feedback at the Hasso Plattner Institute.
Streaming data could allow VR to render any physical location in real time. Office spaces might all go virtual.
Artificial intelligence and VR will dovetail, so people could develop bonds with virtual humans. At least that’s the speculation of Hunter Hoffman, lead designer of Snow World: “The brain is pretty open to buying into that.”
