The best thing about working in VR is that every month brings more excitement. Google announced Daydream to the world in May. Clearly, the biggest news in VR since Facebook acquired Oculus! The Oculus acquisition proved that VR is a legitimate technology. Daydream is indicative that Google believes they can deliver VR on a massive scale. They are forecasting 100's of millions of high quality mobile VR smartphones in the next two years. Support from all of the major manufacturers. Samsung, HTC, LG, Huawei and Xiaomi. This is huge! The VR wave just got much bigger and much steeper. Smartphones will be the main VR consumption device for the world.
Vicarious has been busy iterating on the product. For all of our beta testers we want to give you a big THANK YOU! Your feedback confirmed a lot of our conclusions and brought new ideas to light. You guys have been an incredibly important part of our process and as some of you have seen, the launch product will be amazing!
Lots of events last month:
7/7 Upload Collective invited Vicarious to share our product with an executive delegation from Tencent.
7/13 Vicarious attended the Breaking Innovation Boundaries in Broadband event to learn about technical and policy limitations that could hinder the growth of VR.
We are launching soon. So stay tuned!
