Though developments have been fast and fierce in the virtual reality, augmented reality, and holographic industries, Forbes' Theo Priestley predicts that only one of those is the frontrunner for mass adoption.

"Virtual reality will reign over augmented reality, with AR remaining confined to a mobile app generation for a few years to come as it matures," he writes. "Why? Primarily because Augmented Reality right now is so infant and immature a market, and the technology is at least 5 years away from being something productive."
