Many of the most popular July 2015 multimedia ideas can be split into one of two categories, created for the purposes of either work or play. This kind of immersive technology is now making it easier than ever to tap into sources of entertainment or training programs. Examples of this include virtual reality comedy programs, as well as simulators for professionals working in mining, construction, the military and law enforcement.

Purpose and entertainment converge in examples like the Getty Images VR Database, which is accessible with an Oculus Rift and provides access to a whole new realm of photo and video content.
