Top 30 VR Trends in September

From 360-Degree Closet Tours to Gesture-Controlled VR Suits

— September 28, 2017 — Tech
With virtual reality, everything and anything is possible, and the September 2017 VR trends show that to be the case. The technology allows users to do virtually what they could never do in real life, and developers continue to help engender that freedom of exploration by producing more and more experiences.

Beyond pure entertainment, the September 2017 VR trends include some practical instances of VR technology. For instance, KFC has created a VR experience that simulates the preparation of its famous chicken, helping the company to train new employees quicker and without having to use up resources. Further, Kabaq is an augmented reality system that lets restaurants show diners 3D images of their dishes, making menus far more appetizing than they are traditionally.
