A visitor wears a Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. PlayStation VR as he tries a virtual reality (VR) game during a demonstration by Tokyo VR Startups in Tokyo, Japan, on Tuesday, June 29, 2016. Tokyo VR Startups has launched the first Japanese incubation program focused on the virtual reality market, says the company website. Photographer: Tomohiro Ohsumi/Bloomberg via Getty Images As VR becomes a force in the gaming world (and other sectors), I can't help but draw the evident parallels between the emergence of 3D-console gaming and quasi-nascent VR.

The next day in Minnesota, a black man who was reported to have told police he had a legally registered gun in his car was shot and killed. A p
