Ever since humans existed they sensed the world “as is” but their imagination kept inventing fictional worlds that they dreamed to be transported into. The emergence of Virtual and Augmented Reality is gradually turning that imagination into reality. What are these new technologies and how do they work? How much can they deliver towards such vision? And can we one day find it hard to distinguish between what is real and what is not? Or are we already in the Matrix?
