I'm not looking forward to this. The thing is, divisive negative political advertising works. With Messenger, it will be more targeted where the bulk of recipients won't find the ads offensive.

This is an excellent use of virtual reality. It's educational, it creates cross cultural learning, and it tells a vital message.

One great aspect of VR is that it immerses people in a specific environment. It doesn't have to be fighting imaginary dragons. It can feature real life, historical events.

From Derek A. Ham of NC State.

Oculus Go. Stand alone...no computer needed. Priced at $200.

This should be a breakthrough as it will push VR into early stages of hitting the mainstream. Until now, it's mostly been for gamers or for experimental efforts. Neat stuff, but pricey and therefore, limited.

Content providers - meaning anyone from major media companies to the talented kid down the street - will start investing heavily now in creating 360 video experiences that will change media consumption.

Facebook, naturally, is taking advantage of all this with their Space, Rooms, and Venues.

Dr. Ziv Haskal of UVa Medical center shows how 360 video in VR can be used to teach interventional radiology. The procedure, transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt, is shown step-by-step through its entirety.

This type of training can be better than traditional 2D video in that it places a viewer right in the setting that they would be as if they were actually there.

Charlie Fink gives an overview of leading companies in the healthcare VR space. I'm thinking they're going to have a bright future.

And it isn't just Group Nine. BuzzFeed (general news), Bleacher Report (sports), Mashable (tech/innovation), and Refinery29 (for women) have all built their own studios to create their own shows. Your phone, tablet, and laptop are going to be your new TVs. There will be a lot of failures, but there are riches to be made.
