Is This Real Life? The VR Naysayers

Virtual Reality was a medium that was first promised over 20 years ago. It came and went, crashing in a fiery mess. Now that we stand on the cusp of the second arrival of virtual reality it is no surprise that naysayers will be there to tell us that history will repeat itself.


Today on the show Edmund Ward of Virtual Reality Reviewer joins us to talk about a particularly hot article and a few other news pieces.
