What happens when we find ourselves in an unbelievable situation, jaw wide open, with our senses on fire because we cannot fully understand what just happened?

The other half will embrace this new river into our understanding of what this new reality means for all areas of our lives. Go down the rabbit hole with Brett as he leads us into a future that is rapidly evolving and explored every day in the realms of virtual and augmented reality.
