3D TV, like 3D movies, is completely useless and pointless. With or
without needing to wear silly glasses, it's nothing but a gimmick.
VR does have /some/ good uses, but I don't see VR (nor AR) ever being
as big of a deal as many people are making it out to be. I can see VR
being popular with hard-core gamers (those willing to spend many
thousands of dollars on gear and games) and in also to a degree some
business environments (such as architecture).
