Today is the year for both augmented reality and virtual reality, but one may soon overtake the other.
Virtual reality used to be a technological fantasy for people decades ago, but now it is a reality, and it is all within everybody's reach. People are excited to hear the news that Google Earth is finally converging with the world of VR, allowing its users to literally "fly" throughout the world.
Thanks to Microsoft HoloLens and NASA, setting foot on Mars without falling off the face of the Earth is now possible through virtual reality.
The New York Times released a 360 virtual reality tour of Pluto. The VR film will be showcased during the Seattle Film Festival and it can be viewed on any mobile device by downloading the NYT VR app.
