VR Ascendant: The International Data Corporation (IDC) expects worldwide revenues generated by the augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) segments will climb at least 100% annually over the next four years. Spending on products and services related to AR and VR is projected to grow from $11.4 billion this year to almost $215 billion by 2021.

Cheap TVs: Midsize and larger LCD panels used in flat-screen TVs have seen a price drop of at least 4% between May and August of this year, according to research firm TrendForce. LCD panels sized at 65 inches saw the largest price decrease of between 5% and 7% over the time frame. Those price drops are likely to translate into cost savings for consumers buying LCD panel TVs down the line.
