Apple CEO Tim Cook Prefers AR to VR

Not too long ago, Apple CEO Tim Cook had reasoned why he prefers AR to VR. He asserted that AR allows users to interact with the real world.

“Virtual reality sort of encloses and immerses the person into an experience that can be really cool, but probably has a lower commercial interest over time,” Cook said. “Less people will be interested in that.”

“There’s some really cool areas there for education and gaming that we have a lot of interest in,” Cook said of VR during an Interview given to ABC news.
