Will VR technology change the face of computing, or will it be a here today, and gone tomorrow as a fad? The technology while not new, has made a big play in the last couple of years, with a lot of major players bringing out gear and apps that can turn your smartphone into a 3D environment where anything goes. Want to jump out of a perfectly good airplane without risk? There's an app for that. Want to visit strange places and foreign shores, Google Earth has gone VR? While VR technology is not exactly perfected, which can cause some users to become nauseous when wearing VR goggles, the future of VR is not simply one set to wow the crowd. There are a number of researchers and engineers who think that in the near future, VR will be the go to tech for designing everything from buildings and aircraft, to designer genes and surgery.
