    I think the difference between AR/VR will come down to portability. I can see AR taking over the pocket-sized or tablet-sized screen domain, while VR is more of an "at-home" or "at-work" (or "at-school"?) experience.

    Think of the difference between your smartphone and your computer/laptop. We'll rely, I think, on VR for "heavyweight" experiences, enterprise computing, professional design, and immersive presence-based applications (this could be huge for education, imagine a real-life Magic Schoolbus scenario). AR, on the other hand, seems best suited for the "lightweight" uses afforded to smartphones... casual gaming, socializing, killing time, enhancing our life on-the-go.

    I get excited just thinking about all the possibilities!
