    While virtual reality is all the rage right now, I really think mixed reality stuff like this from Magic Leap and Microsoft's HoloLens are going to be phenomenal as well. Check out this Star Wars experiment from ILMxLAB and Magic Leap.

    Yes, this type of experience can be amazing. I can't wait to try out the hardware when available. Google Glass had its moments, but was early to the game. The videos I've seen blow it away.

    Except, that one is fake. It felt cheesy and plastic from the start. Not the good kind of plastic either. The bad kind where you know that what your seeing is a complete fabrication.

    It's called Augmented Reality (AR) not Mixed Reality FYI.
