Facebook snapping up another VR company. Sounds like a double down to me. 360 sound is necessary for a full VR experience. “The social networking giant acquired a small startup called Two Big Ears, which specializes in audio technology that Facebook will incorporate into its own VR projects”
THE FINAL FRONTIER! “Tour 3D Pluto in New Portable Virtual-Reality View”
Thank you Times for a new cool VR experience.
It’s Rolling Stone so you know it’s going to be a good article about the rise of Oculus. “Will Virtual Reality Change Your Life? – How a teenager created Oculus Rift in his parents’ SoCal garage, sold it for $2 billion and may have launched a digital revolution”
I would agree that 2016 is not the year of widely accepted VR. I think 2016 is the beginning of a larger rise. VR is not completely ready for everyone to have or want a headset in their house but it is the beginning of that possibility being actually viable.
