Here's a long summary of the fascinating SVVR panel on the future of virtual reality with Oculus Rift founder Palmer Luckey and other VR industry leaders. Lots of topics covered, including Their personal "aha" moment with VR, mobile versus desktop, a VR "bubble" and VR's killer app, VR for glasses wearers, standardization, and finally, this fascinating exchange, excerpted below:
Audience question for Palmer: You and Carmack talk about building the metaverse as a moral imperative - why?
Palmer: "This is one of those crazy man topics", he begins, but says it comes down to this: Everyone wants to have a happy life, but "it's going to be impossible to give everyone everything they want", such as expensive consumer items. With VR, however, you can do that. It's easy for us to say, living in the great state of California, that VR is not as good as the real world, but a lot of people in the world don't have as good an experience in real life as we do here.
