Battle of the R's [ VR vs AR vs MR ] Why It Doesn't Matter & How It Transforms Making Content Today

With Facebook’s foray into AR hot off the presses, everyone’s left wondering what is AR, VR, and MR exactly? Which medium will reign supreme?

Is in this talk I cover the Battle of the R's, Why It Doesn't Matter & How It Transforms Content Creation Today.

I give a lay of the land of the spatial computing landscape, paying special attention to how these platforms will transform existing forms of media, just as much as creating entirely new canvases for content creators.
