Are we living in the future?

10 years ago we would not believe that in ten years we could develop and enhance technology like what we have done today. We are living the future that once we dreamt about.

What happens in SIGGRAPH 2019 shows us how fast e are moving through AR and VR world through CG technology. In order to keep our pace in this fast-growing world, all we have to do is research and be open to the new devices and techniques that CG technology brings.
