As a kid, I was a big Harry Potter fan. One of the things that really fascinated me was the Pensieve. In the book, it is a device that can store memories and allows you to view them at a later date by placing you inside, as though you were a part of the memory and everything in it was happening around you.
That piece of fiction is now reality as you can see in this TEDTalk by Chris Milk.

And if you spend a lot of time talking to loved ones on Skype or Hangouts, VR is one step closer to having a face-to-face conversation.
