( Consumers across the globe expect virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) to merge with physical reality. The upcoming 5G technology will help make such experiences mainstream, a new report by technology company Ericsson has revealed. Ericsson predicts the boundaries between people’s perception of physical and VR start to blur, the way they consume information and media will fundamentally change.
“Realities will not merge if the user is tethered to a computer or cut off from physical reality. Early adopters of VR or AR expect next-generation networks like 5G to play a central role,” the report noted. Seven out of 10 early adopters expect VR/AR to change everyday life fundamentally in six domains: media, education, work, social interaction, travel and retail.
