Virtual reality is very close to becoming a major element of society. With its ability to alter perceptions of the real world, what implications does the emerging technology have for the future of business and society? Minds Worth Meeting chats with VR pioneer and Stanford University Professor Jeremy Bailenson, who discusses the possibilities, opportunities and dangers of using this new medium. Loaded with cases of companies and visionary leaders currently using VR, his new book, “Experience on Demand: What Virtual Reality Is, How It Works and What It Can Do” (Norton), hits book shelves on January 30, 2018.
