My big concern with Apple VR/AR is it’s going to be nerdy cool in just the right way for me—I’ve wanted a virtual keyboard since The Wizard in 1989 and still reference the possibility of arm keyboards to way too many people—and I’m going to get it and it’s going to annoy the hell out of my wife for years but there will be something amazing with the cats. Augmented reality cats.


It’ll ultimately fail and it’ll be like this nostalgia toy, only as an adult. When I got into home theater nonsense in the nineties, it was solely because of OAR LaserDiscs. You can see the damn movie.

There’s been lots of crap with media since then, but OAR has always won so it’s never become a nostalgia thing.
