Virtual Reality is the trend you’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the future. Like next generation 3D only much much more immersive. Think Tron 2 of the Holodeck on the USS Enterprise and you’re getting there.

Virtual Reality technology allows you to put on a pair of high-tech goggles and be transported into another world. Technology firms are betting in a few years time we’ll all be consuming our entertainment via a headset!
