The beginning of 2016 is providing a powerful, exciting and quick launch for virtual reality (VR) technology. Experts believe video games will be the key driver of VR as it explodes onto the scene.
The VR industry is growing at an insanely fast pace:
• Revenues from virtual reality products (both hardware and software) projected to exceed 5.2 billion U.S. dollars in 2018
• The number of active VR users is forecast to reach 171 million people by 2018
• Revenue from virtual reality head-mounted displays is expected to grow to $3.89 billion by 2018 just in the United States
Like many other seemingly impossible visions of the future, such as video-calling from a wrist-watch or the ability to communicate through a device held in your hand, virtual reality originated from science fiction dreamers and literature.
In order to experience virtual reality, the user needs a specific set of hardware. The most important device that helps the user become immersed in the virtual environment is the head-mounted display (HMD). This is a wraparound headset which does not allow light or images from the real world to interfere with the virtual one.
