2016: the year when VR goes from virtual to reality


Recently, I climbed Everest, making my way gingerly across a shaky bridge while trying not to look down into an icy chasm.

Then I watched as Helena, an 18-year-old with a fear of lifts, got into a series of them as a psychologist attempted to treat her phobia.

In case you had not guessed, these were all examples of the use of virtual reality, which looks likely to be the big technology trend of 2016.

The story is too old to be commented.
