Charlie Fink’s Metaverse
An AR Enabled Guide to VR & AR
Cool Blue Media, 2018
¿De qué se trata?
With the nascent explosion of virtual reality and augmented reality, your world is getting bigger.
Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), favorites of science fiction, are manifesting today, backed by tech giants and pioneered by both art and commerce. But, says media expert Charlie Fink, they won’t enter the mainstream until “killer apps” emerge. Most people don’t yet understand VR and AR but when they do, a new virtual multiverse – and a big business opportunity – will take root. Fink and his expert contributors delve into its tech, market forces, social impact and transformative power. Despite its typos, getAbstract recommends his compelling book to innovators, early adopters, investors, new-media mavens and the technologically curious. The book is interactive; download the Fink Metaverse app, and scan images with your smartphone to see videos or animations.
