(Slate) Stanford’s top VR expert is Jeremy Bailenson, a professor of communication at Stanford University, a man so instrumental in VR’s second coming, Bailenson is not particularly optimistic about its chances to revolutionize consumer technology, entertainment, or the media, at least in the short term. Bailenson sees VR as both potent and taxing.
Bailenson says. “The problem in my opinion is that this technology is not an 8-hour-a-day thing. It’s a 20-minutes, once-or-twice-a-day thing. If I’m right, then this VR revolution is going to have some major bumps in the road.”
