The GamesIndustry.biz Podcast: Making virtual reality mainstream, with Terra Virtua

Subs-based VR platform's CTO Kish Hirani discusses killer apps, and the link between VR and theme parks

The latest episode of The GamesIndustry.biz Podcast is available to download now, taking yet another look at the current state of virtual reality.

This time we're joined by Kish Hirani, industry veteran and chief technology officer at new virtual reality start-up Terra Virtua.

Recorded during the official unveiling of the subscription-based VR platform, this episode discusses the remaining barriers between virtual reality and mainstream adoption.

Not only does this involve the ongoing search for that elusive 'killer app', but also a firmer understanding of what works in VR, the connection between the tech and rollercoasters, and the need for standards across the increasing number of devices on the market.

We also touch upon the price of entry for high-end virtual reality, and whether comparisons to the impact of smartphones are fair when talking about the technology's potential. Plus, of course, a little insight into how Terra Virtua aims to makes its own mark on the VR landscape.
