But normal glasses is just that, a device before the eyes, that helps people to see better. So its easy to asume in the future, VR could also adapt to almost all eyes. Its nice as new research are being made to fight motion sickness and other issues. So any research I guess is something good!
But in my opiniun, the failure of 3d tv or 3d films its not because VR, nor because 3D, but because the content itself needs to be meanful in 3D (why X is made in 3D?). Also the problem of isolation when you are in VR. AR in other hand is more useful (I can see learning using AR is something I hope to see someday!), but at the moment is far far worse than VR. It needs to evolve a lot, and solve lots of problems: occlusion, transparency, etc, etc.
Anyway VR, in games, specially simulator games (really, playing Elite in VR with Hotas is just... not possible to explain how inmersive it is), is actually something really good!
