Speaking at the VR World conference in London, a panel of VR experts discussed what VR’s killer app would look like, and their opinions differed.
Unity Senior Evangelist Josh Naylor said he doesn’t think there has to be one killer app for AR – but there has to be “a whole bunch” of amazing games, experiences and apps.
He noted that Oculus and Valve are doing their best to open up VR to as many consumers and developers as possible, with the aim to get VR games on multiple platforms, not just their own. He said if VR succeeds as a whole, then every single platform will benefit.
CCS Insight Wearables Analyst George Jijiashvili said he felt the next step for VR was better virtual presence. He said at the moment VR is quite solitary, but multiplayer elements and social aspects are what will drive broader interest amongst consumers.
