Dawn of the New Everything : A Journey Through Virtual Reality
Author: Jaron Lanier

More details

Now Virtual Reality is a reality: those big headsets that make people look ridiculous, even while radiating startled delight; the place where war veterans overcome PTSD, surgeries are trialled, aircraft and cities are designed. But VR is far more interesting than any single technology, however spectacular.
