Over coffee with Mom

I was having a coffee with my mother today, and she asked about my research. After explaining what we are building at NYU, I described some of the longer term consequences of this kind of collaborative VR work, after the technology has matured and become widely available at the consumer level.

“For example,” I said, “you and I could be having this face to face conversation over coffee, and decide to move our discussion to a mountain in the Himalayas, or to a cafe overlooking the Grand Canal in Venice.”

My Mom approved wholeheartedly.
