A History of Virtual Reality in the Movies #VR #360DegreeVideo

Virtual Reality is an exiting new frontier in technology that is only now finally becoming available to the masses. With the release of the Oculus Rift, the HTC Vive and now the PlayStation VR they say 2016 is the year of virtual reality—but the idea of VR has been bouncing around the collective imagination of filmmakers for years. This video is a brief look at the movies that have portrayed VR over the years. And because the medium is the message: it is a 360 video. Think of it as a 360 supercut. This video is just a short experiment for me, but I look forward to seeing how other far more talented video essayists may put this new format to use to tell their stories and convey their ideas and insights using the unique affordances that VR and 360 provide.
