amazon vrTo be honest it wasn’t a shock to hear that Amazon have decided to create a virtual reality store in fact its more surprising that its taken them so long!

Vr shopping experience with Amazon

The fact that the VR market is expected to be worth over $160 BN by 2020 means that any tech/ media companies investing now should reap the rewards. Google recently shared info on search volume for VR and have found that interest in this tech has gone up by 400% in the past 12 months! Amazon aren’t the only ones Along with Amazon retail giants Alibaba have also launched a virtual reality shopping experience.

Its likely (although still unknown) that Amazon will launch its VR service off the back of the PS VR launch. One things for certain though, Amazon’s participation in this technology will make sure that VR will remain as a growth sector and not just a fade-away-fad.
