Virtual reality experience can evoke intense reactions among the participants. Audience testing and the possibility to debrief experiences afterwards make sure the audience trust you as an immersive reality storyteller in the future, too.

réalité virtuelle

Stephen Lee's curator insight, March 27, 9:01 AM

The next step in both the film and video game industries, virtual reality (or VR) provides so many new perspectives and an even deeper layer of immersion. Even training and education will benefit greatly as people will be able to learn and practice more accurately before being put in the field for volatile professions such as heart surgery or the military.

Jesse Studin's curator insight, March 29, 11:27 PM

VR has the potential to change the entertainment sector forever. Virtual reality is a way to put the user in the "entertainment piece". This is backed by face book's two billion dollar investment in Oculus.
