7- Virtual reality developers   

Although few of us know it, our minds are trained to operate in a 2-D mode of thought. Our schools have been beating us over the head with 2D thinking since the days of 2D paper, books, whiteboards, and blackboards.

2D screens became commonplace as we entered the computer age. Imagining what it would look like to "surf the net," develop a 3D website, or if we built 3D charts and graphs, what that third dimension would convey is beyond our ability to imagine.

A three-dimensional world is already here, but we've only reached the stage where we can see it.
