CES 2020 proved VR and AR are thriving

Recommended Posts

I kind of think of Vr naysayers as cousins to those who said stuff like if mans was meant to fly..... etc.

Who needs these "phone" things.

Electric light is just a pipe dream....

Fast forwards a few decades......

Actually the real big thing at CES was 8K OLED TVs designed for gaming.

Hell, people even laughed at having to buy an dedicated graphics card... We all know how that went...

It's difficult to predict what will be useful/accepted in the future. Anyone who owns a 3D TV?

That's true, but use a 3D TV for a month, and a VR headset for a month, and see which one you think has greater potential.

Beyond that, VR/AR has now spread to so many different types of applications that for me at least, it's pretty hard to imagine a world that's not practically swimming in it, eventually.

There is even early work (and some actual patents and demos) toward VR contact lenses, which is either promising or scary depending on where it probably takes us.....

That's not the point. The point is that when 3D TV and VR were brand new, it was in both cases impossible to predict if either would work in the long run.

May be hindsight bias on my part in the case of 3D TV, but I don't agree with that assessment. The lesson from the internet or electricity, both of whose utility was vastly underestimated, or even denied at the time of their invention, is that you cannot tell ahead of time which inventions will turn out to be useless. I believe that you can, however, tell which inventions will be useful. It seems to me that as with the steam engine or radar, VR seems poised to be one of those technologies which we can tell from the outset will be useful.
