Why We Care About Mixed Reality From a Studio Perspective
We are continually evolving and improving our visual technology tools to learn, entertain, enjoy, socialize and collaborate in more and more sophisticated and powerful ways.
How much of what will create the success points in the emerging fields of Virtual Reality and Mixed reality is truly related to pure technology advancements and how much is about humanity and our choices on how we've integrated technology into our modern lifestyles?
The more we know about ourselves, the more we can predict the future forms of entertainment and productivity and what role cutting edge technology plays in our day to day lives.
