HTC and Sony have also confirmed launch dates for their headsets in the first half of 2016, and Google announced they are staffing up their executive team for their new virtual reality unit.
But will virtual reality really take off? Will the products be affordable and fashionable enough for today's consumers? Facebook, Sony, Google, HTC, Samsung and Apple sure think so. Even research firms like Juniper have estimated that three million VR devices will ship this year, and, if all continues to go well, that number could increase to 30 million by 2020.
While most people are excited about using VR headsets for immersive entertainment and gaming experiences, an entirely separate audience is busy building the future of business with the same technology — the enterprise.
