Virtual reality enables movies to deliver more. Definitely, movie experiences will not be limited to the visual and the auditory senses. They will sky-rocket to create a full sensory experience where our five senses are used. Whether the movie industry finally fully accepts VR or not, the audience’s needs will prevail. Consumers want a better experience that is more engaging, comfortable, and affordable.
Even now, there are ways to experience Movies in VR, using a variety of devices that are available. People have already been watching movies using Samsung Gear VR. There are also dedicated websites and services, like CineVR that allow users to download an app suitable for their device, and then to enter the VR cinema! If you own an HTC Vive, you can try it on Steam.
So yes, VR is changing the way we watch movies even now. Watching movies in VR is already here, and it is only going to get better. Now, we don’t think it is going to send the modern cinema to the retirement home any time soon, we believe it is only going to expand the way the consumers experience cinema and movies.
Now with this technology, even the astronauts on the ISS won’t need to miss their favorite movie, just because they’re in space!
