His ardent belief that virtual reality headsets are set to alter humanity’s technological horizons is reminiscent of 1990s, when the film Lawnmower Man painted in somewhat crude pixels a vision of the future in which virtual reality (VR) dominated life. The vision quickly disappeared, not only from our movie screens but also from our cultural understanding of where technology might be taking us.
