Augmented Reality en Virtual Reality zijn al lang een grote belofte, maar echt doorbreken doen de technieken nog niet. En waar veel mensen denken dat AR belangrijker gaat worden dan VR, ziet Andreessen dat anders.
The general theme that you hear is that AR will be bigger than VR, and obviously it should be. If you can do things overlaid over the real world, that should be inherently more interesting than having to construct a synthetic world.
I just think that’s only true for people who live in a really interesting place in the real world. But only something like .1 percent and 1 percent of people on Earth live in a place where they wake up every morning and think, Wow, there are so many interesting things to see. So for everyone who doesn’t already live on a college campus or in Silicon Valley or in a major other city, the new environments we’re going to be able to create in VR will inherently be much more interesting. And there will be a lot more of them.
