But virtual reality technology has its advantages which were realized by auto maker Tata Motors. The VR element will be added to showrooms in the next few months so that potential customers will experience the car they are planning to buy. However, there is no denying the fact that a VR headset is quite expensive at Rs 80,400 through Amazon and will need a very powerful PC.
It is difficult to overlook artificial intelligence this year because Apple, Facebook, Google and Microsoft are pursuing the technology. Apple will be making significant exceptions to its traditional policies when it allows its AI team to publish research papers for public consumption.

In 2016, consumers saw the first phones with 6 GB RAM – OnePlus 3, LeEco Le Max 2 and OnePlus 3T but this year expect specifications to be more powerful.
