Have you experienced VirtualReality yet?

Are you wondering what the big deal is?

Are VR and AR just for gamers?

How much different would our jobs and education have been if VR and AR were as common as Zoom?

Did the pandemic come too soon for virtual reality?

How much better could remote work and education have been if AR and VR had become as popular as Zoom?

Video conferencing platforms like Zoom literally saved millions of jobs and probably our economy in 2020. But the 2D experience of staring at Hollywood Square-like screens all day is unnatural. Sharing the same space with co-workers, friends, and family simply offers a more robust and legitimate experience. But what if we had the power to bring places to people; to give us the feeling we’re in the same place but thousands of miles away; to immerse ourselves with others using technology. That is exactly what virtual reality can do.

Welcome to a future world where the line between science fiction and reality blur to give us the power to make positive changes in the way we live, work, and play. To explore this fascinating future of virtual reality and other immersive technologies like AR and XR, Senior Virtual Reality Research Scientist at Virtual World Society Dr. Angelina Dayton joins us for this episode of Geeks Geezers Googlization.

Then stay tuned for the 2nd segment when co-hosts Ira S Wolfe and Joyce Gioia reveal what's ahead for recruitment, hiring, and employee retention for 2021-2022.
