Jason Silva: Portable Virtual Reality Will Allow You to Climb Into Someone Else's Mind
How do you typically let other people into your minds? You smile. You laugh. You use language to communicate thoughts and feelings. Jason Silva is here to explain why that's all going to change once virtual reality reaches its full potential. Imagine instead of writing a poem or painting a picture to express yourself, you construct an entire world in virtual reality and invite others in to make an intimate assessment of who you are and what you project to be. Silva says it blows his mind to imagine "the new spaces of intimacy that will be made possible when you can invite your lover or your friend into your world."
