Blake Collier and Matt Ruff talk to Joanna Popper about HP’s own interests in the development of VR/AR—especially in the realms of location-based entertainment. We talk about what the effects of the technology are on a global scale and the intentions of the creators versus the intentions of the users and how those things sometimes (or often) diverge.
