This article talks about one of the many future uses of VR, as a means of education. You asked us what we thought the future of technology is, well Sir, I do believe this is it.

Pfaff, J (1 March, 2015). Virtual Reality is the Future of Career Education. EduKWest.http://www.edukwest.com/virtual-reality-is-the-future-of-career-education/


This article is an expansion on the idea of virtual reality and what it can do for us. It explains that virtual reality has the possibility of providing us with real life work experiences. Mentions the oculus also and discusses the potential of providing many people across the world at once a unique experience of the scenario in real time. Author states he himself is jumping on board and others should also try filling the gap between VR and online education. Technology allowing people to have a in-depth life like experience before having to really experience it is obviously important and will be massive if done properly.
