VIRTUAL REALITY WILL BE THE ONLY REALITY 

Nintendo was the first brand to come with the concept of VR back in 1995 with the Nintendo Virtual Boy. Post 2010, numerous products made their way in like Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift, One Plus VR and even entry level products like the Lenovo VR setup that comes bundled with K4 Note.

The screens are getting bigger, HD’er and the portability factor is the best part about a mobile device. How can we forget how big a success Nintendo’s “Pokemon GO” has been? Clash of Clans cashed in $1.3 billion in revenue in 2015, which made it the top-grossing mobile app of the year as well.

IN-GAME VEHICLES WE WISH WERE REAL

Videogames never fail to transport us to a world that is far beyond our reach, yet controllable by the tips of our fingers (quite literally). While open-world games offer a vast, new lifestyle to explore, they also give us a taste of some unique vehicles.
