2. Oculus Rift: The Price of a Sharper Vision

Dan Gallagher, The Wall Street Journal

“VR could eventually disrupt areas such as communications, retail shopping—both online as it now exists and in bricks-and-mortar stores—and services such as real estate, to name a few.”

Ben Lane, Housing Wire

4. Business schools build on real estate boom

Anna Nicolaou, Financial Times
