Google offered a glimpse of how it sees the future at its annual developer’s conference this week. And it involves a lot of blending between the virtual and the real worlds using augmented and virtual reality. Google is calling that blend immersive computing.
Clay Bavor, who heads up Google’s AR and VR division, says it’s all part of a future where the virtual and real worlds blur.
“Virtual reality can make you really feel transported somewhere else,” Bavor says. “Augmented reality can bring kind of digital information into your environment and make it really seem as if it’s there in the real world.”
