Netflix versus Amazon Prime Video – depth versus breadth

Article | June 10, 2021

The current field of headsets is still full of iteration and innovation, but none of these devices have truly taken hold in the ways major investors, like Facebook, have probably hoped. Augmented reality, a technology that overlays graphics or video over the user's view of real life, has had its successes.
