Virtual reality is now on the cutting edge of technology, is their anything after virtual reality to improve our lives?

Virtual reality is supposed to improve our lives? That is new to me! I. think virtual reality so far is mostly hype - I have not been impressed by any of the demonstrations I have seen. But there are definitely ways in which computers will become ever more pervasive in our lives - I think part of all the publicity recently is that it is really hard to predict what will be useful in the future, and people are making wild guesses that may or may not turn out to be close to the truth.
