On Oct. 7, 2017, two alumni and a current student discussed why virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are important now and will be more so in the coming 10 years. The session "Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality: The Future Is Now!" was held on the Binghamton University campus during Homecoming 2017.
VR takes you almost anywhere you want without leaving wherever you are. Fly through space, take video gaming to the next level, or golf the world's finest courses. AR adds to what you see and gives you a taste of being a bionic superhero. Imagine a cancer-fighting doctor aided by enhanced medical imaging, or a soldier on the battlefield armed with data on potential dangers.
