Jason Lanier's response is modest when people call him "The Father of VR." Narrator Oliver Wyman gives him a touch of humility as Lanier points out that a lot of others were also involved in creating virtual reality technology. Wyman narrates in a reflective tone that fits well with Lanier's mix of recollections, philosophy, and explanations of technology. Wyman shares Lanier's enthusiasm for explaining VR concepts, as when the author compares the listener's head to a spy submarine to convey an idea. Lanier takes the listener through VR breakthroughs like Nintendo's Power Glove and delves into the psychology involved in the VR experience. He also warns of dangers, including the rise of surveillance. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2018]
