The History of Virtual Reality – Cyberpunk, Anime, and the Movies – Extra Sci Fi – #2

From William Gibson’s “Burning Chrome” which introduced the word “cyberpunk” into pop culture, to modern-day anime like Sword Art Online that explore if technology really isn’t in our control, our anticipation for VR has only accelerated in the last 30 years. Many thanks to Oculus Rift for sponsoring the next two episodes of Extra Sci Fi and giving us a chance to explore our collective definition of virtual reality. http://bit.ly/2vJIFRZ
