09 Jan: Virtual Reality Is About to Get Real in 2016

You don’t need a high-tech headset to see that 2016 will be the year that virtual reality (VR) goes mainstream.

The technology — which allows users to immerse themselves in lifelike locales, such as a packed concert or the depths of the ocean — has a major presence at CES 2016 this week. There are more than 40 exhibitors in the show’s Gaming & Virtual Reality Marketplace, which is 77 percent larger than a year ago.

Virtual reality first became available to consumers last year with the Samsung Gear VR (yes, Best Buy already has it).
