I’m hearing very positive reactions to VR being used in medical situations, and AR is being used in the Navy. Both serve with more distinct purpose than what we currently see on the consumerism end. Unless a person is working the front lines of this technology, we mainly just see the fluff: gaming, videos, etc. I certainly hope we get to see the merging of the functional and frivolous ends very soon (and hopefully not in three quantum-leap generations!).
