XRC: VR/AR: The Journey or Destination?


Welcome to the XR Creators Topic Talk series, where we hold group discussions about what's going on in the VR/AR/XR world.

This week, we'll talk about the purpose of VR/AR. Based on a Tweet by @gfodor in April, we’ll discuss: Are they the tools we're looking to perfect, or are they a stepping stone to something more profound?

• Is there a desire to replace our lives with spatial tech?

• Is there something else we aspire to be?

• Are VR/AR simply the end goal; a way to exhibit what humans can accomplish?

• Do each deserve separate recognition, or are we using both for similar reasons?

Read the Tweet author's related Medium article, The Secret Mozilla Hubs Master Plan, and join us this Saturday to give your take and hear what others have to say!
