The company will provide seminars and classes, starting at VidCon, about the technology and will launch a competition in July to challenge indie filmmakers to create VR/360 content using Samsung’s devices. Ten users will be chosen in the categories of music, auto, science and tech, gaming, travel, fashion, culinary, cause-related, 4D, and sports.

Virtual reality has been a big push for Samsung. The company partnered with Facebook’s Oculus business in 2014 to introduce Gear VR, virtual-reality goggles powered by a high-end Samsung phone. It launched a $99 consumer version of the headset late last year in hopes of making it a mainstream device. And it created the Gear 360 camera to get more content for VR headsets.

No one’s quite sure how popular VR will be. Consulting firm Analysis Group in February estimated that through 2020, the revenue generated worldwide from virtual reality and augmented reality will total somewhere between $2.8 billion and $126 billion. That’s not a typo. The huge range suggests that no one really knows what will happen with this technology.

*********************************************************************

This year is the year for Virtual Reality headsets and in the following years we predict that it will be even bigger as the technology will just boom.
