Here’s a confession: I’m probably one of the few people in Silicon Valley who’s not all that amped about virtual reality. Market researchers would probably guess otherwise. I’m a guy, for one, plus I grew up in the 80s and 90s. I spent my fair share of time melting brain cells playing games like Doom.

I’ll admit that a part of me geeks out at the idea of spending an afternoon virtually shooting down alien spacecraft. But dystopian visions of VR— like that awful Bruce Willis movie “Surrogates,” or that photo of Mark Zuckerberg walking past a sea of people oblivious to their surroundings—give me pause.
