Our tech future may include more communication with voice recognition software, rather than looking directly at the web. We'll explore how companies can make money from these types of interactions. Next, we'll look at a new virtual reality film called "Indefinite," which looks at the experience of immigrant detention in the U.K. Finally, we'll take a glimpse at a possible Apple product: a vaporizer.
