Virtual reality is the new tech craze, but some fear the future it offers. Opponents conjure up a bleak world where people will waste away in headsets living virtual lives because they prefer the virtual world to the real one. They argue that VR marks the beginning of losing touch with our humanity.
Sankar (Jay) Jayaram, the CEO of Voke, a virtual reality company that focuses on immersive live-streams of sports and music events, disagrees. He says that virtual reality will make people more engaged with the real world and more connected to their humanity, not less.
