Ideas on 3D printing and Hyperreality

There are a lot of amazing games coming out on the Vive making use of the motion tracked controllers. There was a round table discussion with VR devs on Toms Hardware where a comment was made that dealing with two handed objects was a challenge because there isn’t that physical link between the real and virtual world.

The link between VR and 3D printer industries could have a symbiotic relationship.

Here’s a fun video of a vision of a possible future of AR/VR world. Link
