"Imagine the ability to put on a VR headset and be instantly transported to a presidential inauguration or even stream live news in ways never before seen. It's not outlandish to think that a major news network could bring a 360-degree camera to broadcast from special events or sites of breaking news to give its viewers the feeling of actually witnessing what is happening first-hand as the action unfolds in real-time. The same appeal could exist for those who want to travel but don't have the means, time, or ability. Being able to visit the pyramids or take part in the running of the bulls may sound like a fantasy, but if someone gets the correct technology on location at one of those destinations, it could be the next best thing to actually visiting those places." -Brian Shea

"The revolutionary nature of virtual reality is inconsequential if it is inaccessible to nearly everyone." -Justin De Guzman

"The interesting thing about virtual reality is that everything is possible. You can basically recreate a complete new reality. In any context, you can play blackjack on the moon, or you can play slots while flying around. You can create a game, where, instead of playing will let you run around in a roulette wheel or you are actually inside the slot game or you are part of the slot game or part of the story." -Raf Keustermans

"Virtual reality is already affecting people on an emotional level much more than any other media, and it has the potential to scale: all you need is an attachment for your cellphone, and you can have this experience." -Chris Milk

"By 2027 we will have ubiquitous virtual reality systems that will provide such rich multisensorial experiences that will be capable of producing hallucinations which blend or alter perceived reality." -Mar Franco

"What if you could put on a virtual reality headset and share a conversation, a past vacation, or interact with a deceased loved one? Would you do it? One company thinks you would. Project Elysium is a custom made virtual reality service that works with clients to recreate 3D models of their deceased loved ones. The founders have clients bring in "reference material" for a deceased loved one, and then the company builds the project. They also work with living people to create their own projects to leave behind for descendants." -Samara Lynn

"At its very core, virtual reality is about being freed from the limitations of actual reality. Carrying your virtual reality with you, and being able to jump into it whenever and wherever you want, qualitatively changes the experience for the better. Experiencing mobile VR is like when you first tried a decent desktop VR experience." -John Carmack

"By the end of this decade, we will have full-immersion visual-auditory environments, populated by realistic looking virtual humans. By the 2030s, virtual reality will be totally realistic and compelling and we will spend most of our time in virtual environments. By the 2040s, even people of biological origin are likely to have the vast majority of their thinking process taking place in nonbiological substrates. We will all become virtual humans." -Ray Kurzweil
