What Future for Virtual Reality?

I’ll advance my own predictions, though! 🙂

Google has launched their second version of the Glass hardware. This did get some news on the popular media, but not much. It’s clear that it became another Google flop. Or was it?

Actually, not quite. Google simply seemed to have given up promoting it as a niche tool for certain enterprises through its Glass at Work programme. If you take a look at what those companies are developing, you can see that they certainly have interest in ‘glassware’ for augmented reality — almost all those companies offer solution for healthcare (aiding surgeons, for example, but also letting doctors quickly browse through a patient’s file) and working in extreme conditions. Health, as we have learned to appreciate, is the ‘next big thing’ for companies to sell hardware and software solutions.
