Technology is sometimes a disruptor, while other times a stumbling block. Following the lifecycle of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, we see how innovation sparks incredible opportunities in multiple fields including Architecture, Entertainment and Medicine. Timing plays an important role in the adoption and ultimate success of a business. What drives mass market trends and how much does the original innovation play its part? As a business owner, knowing where your product or service is within the adoption cycle is essential. This sensitivity is important when managing stakeholder/investor expectations and risk appetite.
