Vision shapes technology

Michael Mace of Mobile Opportunity on the Oculus acquisition:

Isn’t it interesting how companies impose their own mental paradigms on technologies? Google looks at glasses and sees a way to search and consume web services on the go. Facebook looks at goggles and sees a new means for social communication.

Facebook buying Oculus is the modern example of how vision and lateral thinking define product strategy.

This is not about "VR as the future" alone. It's how vision shapes technology like a master craftsman shapes clay into a piece of art.
