The Tactile Analytics ETF tracks a global index of companies that are involved in augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technology. It is the first fund of its kind to track AR and VR directly, and it currently trades on the CBOE. Notable stocks in its current holdings include GoPro (GPRO - Free Report) , Sony (SNE - Free Report) , Microsoft (MSFT - Free Report) , and Take-Two Interactive (TTWO - Free Report) .

AR and VR have obviously been among the most talked about concepts in the technology world over the past several years, but investors looking to invest in these budding businesses most go beyond the hype to understand the nuances of the tech itself and how to properly benefit from its growth.

With this in mind, Bryce and the Finish Line team explained the fundamentals of AR and VR and the differences between the two phrases. The hosts also asked Bryce about which industries have seen the most applications of these technologies.

Later in the episode, Bryce looked to the future and speculated about what the AR and VR industries will look like in 15 to 20 years. The managing partner of Eve Capital was also able to discuss several specific topics related to the fund, including why diversification might be the most efficient way for investors to track these growing markets.
