We’ve all been there.
You’re waiting for a train that you’ve never heard of, waiting for the first-ever VR experience to come to your living room.
And then, suddenly, you’re standing in the middle of a train car, and the entire experience feels real, even if the scenery isn’t.
And, just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, a new obstacle comes along, a piece of technology that doesn’t quite match your expectations, and you’ve to find a new way to get to it.
The problem, of course, is that the experience will never be as good as the actual train.
And even if it was, it wouldn’t be as fun.
In a nutshell, virtual reality isn’t a new technology.
But we’ve been working on it for years, and it’s only recently that we’ve really been able to get our heads around it.
That’s why, today, we’re excited to unveil our first look at how we’re using virtual reality to make our everyday lives easier.
We’re not going to pretend that this is the next big thing, because it’s not.
It’s just one of a long list of things we’ve always been thinking about, and one of the things that makes VR something we want to be a part of for the foreseeable future.
But for now, it’s time to put the headset on and get started.
As we said in our announcement last week, we’ve worked with some of the world’s leading virtual reality companies to help us understand what’s possible with the technology, what’s the biggest challenges that VR is facing, and how we can make it a better experience for everyone.
Today, we want you to get a sense of what virtual reality can do, how it can help you live more productive, and why you should consider getting a VR headset.
Let’s dive in.
Why we’re doing it Today we’re introducing two new virtual reality experiences to you.
The first, called The World is Yours, is an immersive experience designed to help you get to know yourself better, and help you take control of your life.
The second, called Our First Journey, takes you on an immersive journey with us, showing you how we use virtual reality and technology to connect with the natural world around you.
You’ll be guided through some of our favorite places in the world to see our animals, plants, and ecosystems, as well as discover a variety of new experiences.
Both experiences will be available as a free download in the Oculus Store, as an Oculus Home subscription, or as part of the Oculus Connect service.
Our First, Journey The World The world we live in today is a rich place full of opportunity and opportunity to learn and grow.
We’ve created a world where you can live your life in a way that feels truly connected and meaningful, where you’ll be able to feel like you’re in a whole new universe.
It takes us to places like the Grand Canyon, where we can visit some of your favorite sights and places, where the earth and the sky will be alive with color and life.
You can even get a taste of what life in this world is like on a small island, where people can enjoy a traditional Hawaiian meal, or take part in a fishing tour, or learn how to make a simple and healthy food.
We want you, our customers, to be part of this incredible journey, and in the coming months we’re going to be sharing more details about the experiences we’re making available.
And we’re working with some amazing partners to make sure that The World has everything you need to be an even better person.
What’s in it?
What’s coming next?
The first VR experience in The World will help you feel more connected with nature and our planet.
When you look at the earth from a bird’s-eye view, you can see that the land is a vast, vast place that we can explore in ways you never imagined.
Our goal is to make this experience so engaging and exciting that you’ll want to share it with friends and family.
You might even want to take it on a walk, because we’ll give you a bird-eye tour.
It’ll feel like it’s really you.
But this is only the beginning.
There are a lot of other experiences we are making available as part and parcel of this new vision for the world.
These experiences are going to bring you a deeper sense of reality, a deeper understanding of the natural and social world around us, and a deeper appreciation of the value of what we can accomplish together.
The World We are excited to be working with so many of the best virtual reality brands to create a truly unique experience for you.
Together with our partners at The Walt Disney Company, we are working with the likes of Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and Samsung, and will
