I had a meeting today with some NYU colleagues in which we talked about the future of extended reality (XR), and what our research can do to help make it happen. Afterward, we all went out to a nice dinner at a nearby restaurant.
At some point during the dinner I turned to the people next to me and said “I think I know how we will be able to tell when XR has finally arrived.”
“How?” they asked.
“We will know,” I said, “because we will all be wearing our XR glasses while eating a nice meal together at a restaurant like this one. And it will all be perfectly normal.”
