Risks abound here in reality, and virtual reality will be no different. Don the headset and let’s see in 3D (or immersive virtual reality) what we are about to face.

A big concern is hacking. GPS spoofing is on the rise. Deep fake has hit the mainstream and VR hacking is sure to be a thing. If distractions weren’t bad enough, wait until hackers show a clear path across a busy street in the VR headset and send pedestrians right into oncoming traffic.
