I believe in Augmented Reality (AR). Not in Virtual Reality (VR). At least, currently.

And the reason is because, AR is bringing a soft change to our society. It's actually a massive change, but in terms of how the society works, it will not change that much. While VR, is what I call a hard change. If VR gets globally adopted, the world will never be the same. And that's precisely the reason why VR will take much more time before reaching it's maturity level, simply because people will need to adapt a lot. Besides, VR takes a lot more time to develop. If you are a VR app developer, you will need to literally create a whole artificial world, which obviously, will need to be beautifully designed, because who wants to live in a world full of ugly pixels? While an AR app developer, simply needs to develop a light-weigh graphical interface which can be used through the AR glasses, and that's all.

It's not that I don't believe in VR, it's that, AR will likely reach a lot faster its maturity level than VR.
