Virtual reality seems to be everywhere right now, but is it more than a passing fad? Will VR change the way we experience nearly every aspect of life, including entertainment, education, and medicine? Join Future Tense at 6 p.m. on April 3 in Washington for a show-and-tell featuring scientists, journalists, artists, and entrepreneurs who are using VR to transform their fields. Then stick around for hands-on demonstrations in our VR pop-up.
