In social media aspects it could be very exciting to talk to people like you could in Skype, but would provide a more 3D space where people could actually interact across distances like they were in person.
In gaming it could give a neat perspective on a world that doesn’t actually exist. It also presents a new way of controlling a character. Though this format has a bit of a disorienting aspect of the viewer not having a body, which can be a bit disorienting.
The technology is a bit cumbersome at the moment but I can see that in the future as technology advances the technology will get smaller and more streamline. I am excited to see where this technology goes in the future. One of the downsides is that in gaming the screen can merge a bit on the center causing a user to go a bit cross eyed, but as a whole the platform works very well and has great potential.
