AR and VR will radically change the way we interact with reality and with each other. What role will these new platforms play in education, business, social networking and entertainment? During this fireside chat, Hugo Barra from Oculus (MIT Class of 2000) will share his vision of the post-smartphone computing era, as well as his personal story.
