Re: Virtual Reality for TV
It depends, would this be viewed as a natural advance like the move from B & W to colro in the 60s? Or would this be regarded as a novel idea that just won't take off in the mainstream like Smell-O-Vision films?

Re: Virtual Reality for TV
@Ariella I feel like it lands somewhere in between.  It will walk a tightrope until there is enough content available for average consumer interest or it will fade away into obscurity like 3D TVs.

Re: Virtual Reality for TV
One thing that will be interesting to watch is the ability to use existing hardware (e.g., cell phones) for VR. The cost of 3-D headsets seemed to be a barrier to their heavy adoption; maybe VR will learn from some of that technology's shortcomings.

Those cheap cardboard setups for smartphones to act like VR.. aren't great for the VR experience. VR hardware just needs to get a LOT smaller and cheaper before it can go mainstream...

Re: Virtual Reality for TV
@faryl - I think we are seeing different options emerge for VR equipment -- from the "magic window" approach which works on mobile phones and PCs, to low-end cardboard type devices all the way up to really high-end VR headsets. There's also the virtual view approach, which replicates a movie theatre experience but the video is regular 2D, just set in a virtual theatre or box seats in a stadium.
