History Of The Future - Hardcover
is on back order
“Virtual reality is inevitably going to become mainstream - it's only a question of how good it needs to be before the mainstream is willing to use it.” – Palmer Luckey
- From iconic books like Neuromancer to blockbuster franchises like The Matrix, virtual reality has long been hailed as the ultimate future of technology. But outside of a select few research labs and military training facilities, this tantalizing vision of the future was nothing but science fiction.
- Until 2012, when Oculus founder Palmer Luckey - then just a nineteen-year-old dreamer living in a camper trailer - invented a device that had the potential to change everything.
- Drawing on over a hundred interviews with the key players at the heart of America's tech behemoths like Facebook and Microsoft, The History of the Future weaves together a rich, cinematic narrative that captures the breakthroughs, breakdowns and human drama of the race to own what is understood to be a multi-billion dollar industry.
