The first time I held Samsung's HMD Odyssey in my hands, there was only one thought in my head: this is not a toy. I didn't think that with other VR headsets. Acer's was clunky and cool, the PSVR was sleek and simple. But Samsung's HMD Odyssey is a class above, a full 645 grams of reality-altering gadget hanging from your face, with and AKG headphones, and a microphone built into its decidedly unattractive, front-loaded headset. It's more akin to heavy-duty, serious sets like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The Samsung device has its own merits and flaws that stand out. Almost immediately I realised that it's a clumsy thing built for deep, immersive game experiences. It's not a toy -- it's the headset equivalent of the guy who brings a desktop computer to Starbucks to play League of Legends.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
