Investors Flock to VR Companies as Society Unravels
Investors are more eager than ever to invest in virtual reality, sources report. VR, as it's known to insiders, is on the rise, especially in the wake of the recent string of tragedies both at home and abroad- And that's great news for Silicon Valley. Microsoft, Oculus, Sony and HTC are just a few of the companies working hard and innovating within the fledgling industry. Elsewhere, xenophobia and homophobia run rampant, terrorist attacks are so frequent they cease to be a news item and for it's totally fine to be openly racist again.
"The possibilities of VR are practically infinite," said Oculus spokesperson Nancy Chin. "You can have experiences and visit places that are impossible in reality, like taking a walk around the inside of a volcano or a living in world where cops don’t murder black people and nobody wants to shoot you because you’re gay."
Chin also mentioned that most companies in the industry are using this new influx of capital to redesign headsets with comfort in mind. "We anticipate that people are going to want to spend more and more time in VR," said Chin. "Because right now, the real world is fucking depressing."
