3.2 Virtual reality

Virtual reality is already used in some industries for training and education. It is particularly useful for training employees who will have to go into hazardous environments.

While the technology still needs further development before it can become widely adopted, some commentators are imagining a time where it could be used for virtual meetings in which our avatars (our embodiment in the virtual world) meet in more interesting locations and have more stimulating meetings as a result.
