While TIME magazine is facing ridicule for its sub-optimal magazine cover featuring Oculus Rift founder Palmer Luckey on “the surprising joy of virtual reality,” the publication was right about one thing: the joy of virtual reality is not too far off for mainstream adoption.
But BetaKit Senior Editor and We Are Wearables founder Tom Emrich, of course, was at the forefront of showcasing what the future of gaming will look like with augmented and virtual reality for Canada AM this morning.
Emrich introduced the Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition powered by the Samsung S6, the first consumer-available VR headset, the Epson Moverio BT-200 AR smart glasses, and an early version of Sixense’s STEM system.
This isn’t Emrich’s first appearance on the show; a few months ago, he was on Canada AM to talk about health and fitness wearables.
