The race for the next computing platform may be over, according to Goldman Sachs.

Researcher Heather Bellini said that she expects virtual and augmented reality to become an $80 billion market by 2025, roughly the size of the desktop PC market today. In this video below, she discusses how the technology has improved since earlier launch attempts and how it’s already transforming sectors like real estate, healthcare and education.

Thanks to Road to VR for the heads-up.
