I tried google cardboard for the first time a few weeks ago and it blew me away. So much so that I instantly bought four more to give as gifts for Christmas. But that’s not all, every time someone comes over I tend to ask them if they’ve experienced VR and if they haven’t I show them. I can’t help but share it, which is the key to my prediction here.
When it comes to new technology, it’s not about how quick someone can come up with the idea. It’s about how quickly you can get people to buy it and share it.
At $25 Google cardboard is going to spread fast.
We should see VR picking up speed in 2017.
If you don’t believe me, think about this:
Imagine sitting first row during the Super Bowl?
How about a live concert?
Well, it’s about to happen.
Not only will this be revolutionary for the entertainment world (not to mention adult entertainment) but it’s going to change how we learn. Instead of watching a video about the rainforest you’ll be able to be immersed in the rainforest while learning from the worlds best teachers.
For small businesses you can expect to see them start to use it for sampling.
Real estate agents can do an open house through VR.
Gyms can offer a virtual tour of the facility.
Resorts can offer you a tour before you buy.
Get ready, VR is going to be big.
