VR At CES: More Real, But Also A Bit Sureal

As virtual reality becomes more of an actual reality, there was virtually no shortage of it on display at CES.

Based on some of the sets I viewed, the quality of the immersive experience is now quite high.

But aside from what happens inside, as individuals at CES wore any of a number of VR headsets, those outside that world indeed got a totally different view.

Interestingly, watching the people experience VR in the large halls of CES became somewhat of a spectator sport, as crowds would gather and simply watch a person experience VR.
