Evolution of VR
Virtual Reality (VR) technology is here, and it is fast gaining momentum in the events industry. If you feel a tiny bit blindsided, it can help to understand where it started, how it is being used today, what the implications are for the future. Below, we take a very brief look at its evolution.

It also found its way into design-related niches like architecture and car manufacturing. Little did many of us realize how soon it would become a global standard in marketing and a daily part of our lives.
