Virtual and Augmented Reality

Episode 06: Virtual Reality – More Than Just Gaming

I recently had a chat with Annie Harper to discuss the topic of virtual reality. Annie is the CEO of Equal Reality, a company focused on creating social educational experiences using virtual reality. In the interview, Annie defined virtual reality and talked about how it differs from augmented reality. We looked at some practical business applications and discussed how virtual reality is a great fit for educational and training purposes. We also took a quick detour to discuss some of Annie’s experiences as an entrepreneur. We ended the interview with a look into what the future may hold for the virtual reality industry. So without further ado, here is my interview with Annie Harper:
