Virtual Reality & Google Cardboard

A few weeks ago I ordered a pair of Google Cardboard “glasses” after finding out that the New York Times was creating “an immersive virtual-reality experience” by offering special videos shot in 360 virtual reality format.

I’ve been hearing about virtual reality more and more and naturally have been thinking about how it will effect workplaces and work environments moving forward.

I found a few great articles about this. See below.

TechCrunch > “A recent report from investment bank Goldman Sachs predicted that within 10 years, virtual reality hardware will be an $80 billion industry.”

Ipswitch > “For many, the future of virtual reality is of little concern — in work-related tasks at least — as most still tend (and prefer) to work in the real world.”
