What are your thoughts about AR/ VR and IoT?
In the short-term AR/VR and IoT will be limited to specific use cases in specific industries.
What do you think will be the future of Mobile technology?
Over time, mobile technology will become more ubiquitous and more transparent. As this occurs and the industry transitions from a screen-based user experience, AR/VR and IoT will start coming into their own for more broad-based consumer use cases. Additionally, as IoT technology becomes more flexible and less dependent on large amounts of pre-installed infrastructure, its use cases will expand as well.
