In the future, could your commute to work be just a simple stroll to pick up your VR headset?

When we look back 50 years from now, the 2D internet we all use today is likely to seem ridiculously archaic.

Not only will the Internet probably no longer exist behind a screen, but we will probably interact with it differently.

We will manipulate objects using augmented reality (AR), explore virtual reality (VR) worlds and merge the real and the digital in ways we cannot currently imagine.

And what does this mean for the world of work? We are already moving away from the commute and turning away from the traditional office. And that’s thanks to two years of pandemic lockdowns and a new love, or tolerance, for virtual encounters.
