VR and AR the next computing platform?

Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) have the potential to become the next big computing platform, according to Goldman Sachs Research.

In the first report from a new Profiles in Innovation series, Goldman Sachs Research examines how VR—which immerses the user in a virtual world—and AR—which overlays digital information onto the physical world—can reshape existing ways of doing things, from buying a new home to interacting with a doctor or watching a concert.

Heather Bellini of Goldman Sachs Research expects virtual and augmented reality to become an $80 billion market by 2025, roughly the size of the desktop PC market today.
