Watch: Is this the future? A look at where virtual and physical realities meet

We're often told that VR is the way forward, but how does that look in real life?

We've all heard and seen images of Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR and all of the other virtual reality headsets being targeted at the consumer market. But have you ever looked at them and wondered "what's the point of that?" or "where is that going to lead to?". Well, scroll down. 

A mind-boggling video appeared on YouTube not so long ago with the following description

"Hyper-Reality presents a provocative and kaleidoscopic new vision of the future, where physical and virtual realities have merged, and the city is saturated in media."

Could this be an accurate depiction of what the world will look like in just a few, short years?
