Microsoft Believes Communication Will Be VR’s Killer App

(VentureBeat)  Alex Kipman, technical fellow at Microsoft and the researcher behind Microsoft’s HoloLens AR headset, predicts that communications will be the killer app for mixed reality. That’s why Microsoft acquired AltspaceVR, a social networking space in VR. AltspaceVR and Microsoft will try to figure out ways that people can meet each other in VR or AR.
Kipman said, “We are standing at the threshold of the next revolution in computing — a revolution where computers empower us to expand our capabilities and transcend time, space, and devices, a revolution where we immerse ourselves in virtual worlds of our choosing, and we accomplish seemingly impossible things, while making lasting memories with the people we love.”
