Everybody has heard of VR by now, as the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift have taken the market by storm. Before this point most people only had an idea of VR from movies such as James Cameron's Avatar, which technically wasn't really VR anyway. The essence was there however, using technology to put yourself in another place, world, dimension, etc. This post would mostly be dedicated to the Vive, as I feel that it has more to talk about.
VR headsets will probably be the biggest new addition to entertainment in the next two years. There are tons of upcoming virtual reality experiences between Oculus Rift, HTC Vive & Steam VR, Project Morpheus, Microsoft HoloLens, and smartphone experiences like Google Cardboard. VR really is the next big thing, and because of the depth of the immersion, in some ways I mean that quite literally.
