We’ve seen the meteoric rise of virtual reality in our modern time and it’s brought so much with it. Now, we’re seeing the adopters of this technology tell us about their true desires for the medium. They want a new way to explore movies and other visual media. The excitement surrounding VR has led to more than 20% of homes having at least one VR device, but it’s going to take more than that to get into the majority of homes. This is where the new wave of VR movies is going to finally bring us the virtual experiences we desire. The market is ready for this and the people are fired up for ways to utilize their devices.
The VR movies coming out are going to be experiments in what can best be described as unexplored territory. We’ve never seen something like this and we simply don’t have any good ideas to describe what’s about to happen. The history of cinema has brought all sorts of things to the forefront such as 3D and surround sound. This is going to be the next step for cinema which means there is going to be a need to change how we think about movies. They are going to become experiences we can fully appreciate in every way. It will no longer seem like we’re watching other people act. It will seem as if we are actually living our lives.
There is so much out there for people to see and experience with VR cinema, but most of it hasn’t been created yet. When the market finally matures we’re going to see people purchase headsets just to experience movies and games like they have never been able to in the past. This isn’t going to be an easy thing to understand, but it’s certainly going to play a key role in the entertainment of tomorrow. We’ll no longer think of entertainment as something to watch from a distance. We will integrate into our lives and memories. It will become integral to our identity and what we think of the world as a whole.
