38 Immersive VR Innovations

From VR Barista Training to VR Magazine Covers

— June 24, 2019 — Tech
VR technology continues to improve and is becoming more integrated into society's everyday lives. There have been many recent VR innovations that highlight different ways the technology is being implemented by the masses. One noteworthy way VR technology is being used is for the training Baristas -- Costa Coffe now has a comprehensive training program, which in part uses VR headsets.

More notable VR innovations include Bandai Namco's VR gaming tour, where the company provides VR gaming experiences for popular titles like Mario Kart. The company has brought the arcade to cities around the world including Washington DC, London, and Tokyo.

VR magazine covers have also been adopted by popular Magazine companies. Recently, Dove and Entertainment Weekly created a VR magazine cover, where readers could view the cover through the Live VR app.
