Elon Musk & Joe Rogan discuss VR, HTC Vive, and being 'indistinguishiable from reality'

If you look through the haze, there was an interesting conversation about VR during Joe Rogan's podcast.


Elon Musk smoking during the Joe Rogan podcast has already skyrocketed (yup) into meme status, but the conversation had during the podcast contained some interesting nuggets. One of the most intruiging is a discussion around virtual reality, HTC Vive, and Valve.

Rogan's perspective on VR was interesting, as it "freaks" him out personally, but, he looks at it through the lens of his children using the HTC Vive. He ponders what it will be ten years from now and how it will be integrated into our lives. Musk responds that he believes that things will be "at some point, indistinguishiable from reality."
