AR vs VR
I'm pretty excited to see what comes of the Hololens. Clearly the technology needs to come down a lot in terms of consumer cost before we can expect it to catch on, but it has a lot of exciting potential.

I wonder if we'll see the more dominant VR company start edging into AR too in the near future. The two technologies could merge easily enough with a powerful enough system. 

We just need wireless transmission so the hardware doesn't have to be in the headset.
