The Consumer Electronics Show: Is Virtual Reality a Thing of the Future?

I’ve recently been reading about the Consumer Electronics Show, an event that took place in Las Vegas very recently. In 2014, the hype for new technology was geared towards wearables (see my previous blog if you want to find out more!). However, there is a new wave of interest for something called Virtual Reality, which featured heavily at the 2015 event. I decided to give my take on what VR is, what it isn’t – and whether it has the potential to help disabled people either now or in the near future.
