Was Christmas 2017 the year for mainstream Virtual Reality?

Was Christmas 2017 the year for mainstream Virtual Reality? Not Yet.

Yes Virginia, there are many VR products on the market this Christmas. But it just doesn’t seem mainstream yet. (Sigh.)

Many of you, like us at GIRL VR, have been anxiously awaiting the coming of mainstream VR. Over the years, you may have visited your local stores like Best buy, to see a demo of say every 3D TV that came out. Only to be disappointed. Oculus and HTC have had demos in some stores. Even the Samsung Gear VR has not captured the public’s interest enough. But on other retail areas, VR is plentiful in the form of cardboard and plastic viewers, while the quality is, well, not so much. 360 cameras are becoming more popular although most are monoscopic, instead of stereoscopic 3D.

Let’s hope the future is brighter for VR. Google has a new goggles and phone coming out. Daydream? We can only Daydream of a VR future that is fantastic. Here at Girl VR, we are still optimistic.
