Virtual reality has been around for decades, but it’s just now becoming a household technology. You can buy any smartphone just about and stick it into a $15 Google cardboard headset and have a basic virtual reality experience these days. This has proven to be especially useful for schools where they don’t always have access to things like science labs – kids can still see virtual demonstrations of science concepts in a way that has more dimension than watching a video. Virtual reality is huge, but augmented reality is going to be bigger.

Augmented reality takes the experience to a new level by incorporating things like haptic feedback and binaural audio to create a very lifelike experience. Investments in augmented reality technology are already surpassing those of virtual reality, and by 2021 augmented reality is projected to be an $83 billion industry.
