Interest in virtual reality is skyrocketing and it’s beginning to make its way into the public consciousness. When we first began this site as a humble blog, we wrote about the impact of the Oculus episode of South Park on social media interest surrounding the industry. Yesterday in front of a national audience virtual reality got another nice bump thanks to its recent affiliation with the NFL.
Virtual reality training became a hot storyline leading up to the season’s opener leading to a 180% increase in twitter traffic around virtual reality over the course of the week, including a 130% spike on Sunday, according to Topsy. And as VR makes its way into the minds of mainstream consumers, investors are taking notice.
Investment in VR has grown at a 64.36% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) since 2013, a number that is expected to rise as consumer hardware makes it to the market. As investment interest continues to swirl we have worked with Cubicle Ninjas (who provided the amazing graphical work) and Greenlight VR to create an infographic illustrating the current investment scene in VR.
