Artikel in The New York Times over de beslissing van Daniel Birnbaum uit een prestigieus museum te vertrekken, om zijn geluk te beproeven in start-up op het gebied van VR. Hoe ver zijn eigenlijk de ontwikkelingen in Virtual Reality?

In het artikel passeren uiteenlopend toepassingen van VR-technieken in kunstzinnige uitingen de revue.
