Robert Hernandez makes the case for checking out virtual reality storytelling if you haven’t already

header-vrIn a recent post, USC Annenberg professor and digital journalist Robert Hernandez makes the case that you need to check out virtual reality technology if you haven’t already. We’e even had a few posts on the site this year about the newly emerging 360 technology and feel the same.

In a post on Medium though, Hernandez talks about some of the VR storytelling technology that makes it affordable for the masses to dabble in and the different media out there allowing the experiences to be widely accessed.

Take a few minutes to check out the post here (Medium says it’s a 4-minute read) VR: Your New Storytelling Opportunity.

If you and your staff are dabbling in VR, I’d love to hear about it. Please let me know at
