…and feels like where we sat at the beginning of smart phone revolution when the iPhone 1-3 were released between 2007-2009. Just the start.
Extremely excited for VR, which I believe is the next logical ‘screen’ to arrive at after the supersized OLED phase we are in now.
WebXR (which streams immersive experiences) / 360 videos / and the social connections enabled by things such as the Echo Zero G app and others like it illustrate what a virtual environment is capable of doing, allowing multiple users to play and chat with one another in an immersive environment.
The most important thing in my opinion are:
- to bring the resolution of the displays to a high enough level to avoid the screen door effect
- to bring down the cost of the device
- make it portable
- extend non-game functionalities
I see most of these happening now with the Quest 2 release (appears the Quest 3 is under discussion for release this year) and am extremely enthusiastic about the platform.
