37 Examples of Virtual Reality Entertainment

From Simulated Northern Light Shows to VR Videos

— February 5, 2015 — Tech
Two dimensional experiences are something that may be phased out sooner than later with the continual creation and improvement of virtual reality entertainment. Although this is still a burgeoning industry, the strides that have been taken recently are exciting. Virtual reality entertainment grants a more immersive experience that fleshes out movies, video games, art installations and more in ways that can often only be captured in real life.

Yet through virtual reality entertainment, people are able to delve in and out of fantasy in ways that make the experience even more rich and exciting. As the technology increases in sophistication and scope, it will be adopted in even more interesting ways. The only stipulation will be that other technology keep up with virtual reality entertainment in order for people to readily adopt it.
