Could Virtual Reality Revitalize the Economy?

By Brian Shuster

In 1995 I tried to raise venture capital for the world’s first Internet advertising company, and couldn’t find a single investor. No one had ever heard of the World Wide Web, and nobody believed it would take off.

Fast forward four years and venture investors were falling all over each other trying to fund anything with a “.com” in the name with as much money as they could force these companies to take.

A Gorgeous New VR Game From the Makers of Monument Valley

By Liz Stinson

If you tried hard enough, you could almost imagine yourself wandering its sunrise-colored worlds, exploring the M.C. Escher-style architecture alongside Ida, the pointy-hatted avatar. It was immersive—well, as immersive as a 2-D experience can be—but in the end, you were tapping and swiping on a screen.

It made many people wonder: What would it be like to be inside Monument Valley? Would it be as cool as expected? Would you puke all over the exquisitely designed world? Now we can find out. Ustwo will soon release Land’s End, a virtual reality game for the Samsung Gear VR headset.
