Mark Zuckerberg on what he thinks the primary applications of the Oculus VR headset will be:
“The reason we’re excited in this space is the continued progression of people getting richer and richer ways to share what’s on their mind. Ten years ago it was text. Now it’s mostly visual and photos, then primarily video and we’re seeing huge growth there, but that is not the end of the line. Immersive 3D content is the obvious next thing after video.”
Interesting to think about how VR within Facebook might look. One application I can envision would be someone posting a virtual reality video (I’ll call it a “VR”) of their wedding reception and their friends can put on their own virtual reality headset and experience it. Those without a virtual reality headset will watch it more like a traditional video.
