For instance, take couches and chairs and other items and place them in your home or office before purchasing to see if it’s the right fit.

Virtual Reality shared spaces allow you to create your own world and experience other’s worlds. Also through apps can go explore 360 degree videos on the web. For instance you can tour Rome with Holotour.

Overwatch Weapons In Virtual Reality (VR)!

In this video, Unit Lost, experiences some of Overwatch’s finest weapons in first person virtual reality. Lucky for us, we have YouTube, and we get to live vicariously through him. Thanks for sharing mate! Specifically he shows off Tracer’s dual energy pistols and McCree’s revolver and D.Va’s light gun.

Virtual Reality is here. And, judging by my own personal reaction and this guy’s nerd out, we can safely say, VR is here to stay! Try not to smile and be jealous while watching this video.

I expect that we can hear much more about Virtual Reality and its early implementations at upcoming E3, which can be watched in all it’s glory on YouTube’s greatest creation yet, the YouTube Gaming App (I would say its YouTube Capture, but it’s only available on iOS, so Booo!).

In addition to VR, I also expect to see more about drone footage and 360 viewing camera and recording.

We can only hope for more on the Microsoft Hololens this E3 as well.

What technology and games are you looking forward to hearing about the most this year?
