China ecapital Corporation Wang ran why should I believe that VR changed entertainment
The writer is founder and CEO@ of China ecapital Corporation Wang ran, the article reproduced from the official public account China ecapital Corporation. Article answers several questions: first, the VR can play, what kind of flower? Second, the VR on the territory of what was happening; third, the VR industry will bring change? Four, VR time who will be the winners? Wu、yige changed the world by VR will be what? Slightly longer in length, dry goods, and is divided into article publishing.
A few questions first:
-Ten years later there will be a movie theater?
–The same movie you 60 minutes of reading, but I use it for three hours, it is possible to do?
–You can sit on the sofa into a movie scene and “side” of Tom Cruise or Anne Hathaway: interactive?
–“Scared baby” movie scene could careless really scared baby, please?
–We really “return to the past”? virtual reality headset
All of these issues became a problem, because two letters: VR.
Full name Virtual Reality and virtual reality.
If the next 5–10 years for something to like Uber subversion of the taxi industry to subvert the global entertainment industry in the world, I think VR is the thing.
VR can play, what kind of flower?
If summed up in one sentence why VR can be so powerful, I think it is because it can make us feel close to escape the shackles of physical space-time, from the four dimensional world into “four-by-two” world.
Imagine this scenario:
— You can curl up on the sofa in the living room, picked out with his mobile phone to see the movie, wearing VR glasses, then you entered a modern Virtual Office of IMAX film. This is you himself of Chang, you can invited as far away as another city of friends and you with views shadow, he (she) on sat in you of next, you can side see side voice chat, without worried noisy to others, without was not told civic received phone of people disturb, around no Leek box of smell, also no back while kick you chair back a feet of children.
— Start of the film, you can choose to continue in the Virtual Office of IMAX to watch, you can also choose to enter the scene. If you choose to enter the scene, Tom Hanks or Anne Hathaway may be here with you, maybe even nodding to you. Flying a Firefly, you can use your finger to interact with it. You may like sitting paraglider flew through a forest, possibly in a hail of hide and right-left or passed great white sharks in the sea. You may be standing at a fork in the road, choose where to go will determine how you see the story. You may also stay in a castle, you pushed open the door and entered the room at this time will see a goddess in a bubble bath, and went into the other room you will be witnesses of the bloody murder together; you can even see the remote to watch a movie with friends and you walk into a room that is … After seeing VR 2D as in video on the Web comic, look at 3D sex felt like across the sleeping bag.
— VR apply not only in the movie the one field. You put the glasses on and immediately appeared in the TFBOYS concert, the voice of China, or the World Cup final live. You in reinforced concrete office building sits in a file as Hill’s desk has been working for 20 hours, want to take a NAP, why not make yourself a second lie in Tahiti beach. You have 200 pounds heavier and has a heart condition, you can “mount” the peak of Mount Everest. Do you want to learn tennis and Li Na, she can always by your side action. Do you want to feel me Angelababy cloakroom, perhaps only minimally paid 10 Yuan can be achieved. Night as far away as the other half of the earth do you want to call the girlfriends, dialing numbers, you sat opposite her, and now she may be basking in Sun. Where major news event occurs, you can instantly become a witness at the scene, the news is no longer used to “seeing”, but to “experience” and “experience”.
— There are more sensational scenes: after a number of years, when the parents are no longer, you put the glasses on and immediately go back, enjoyable family sat around the table, eating old meals, talking about the old days, they never go away. Only when you took off his glasses, can be found two tears down out of the corner.
VR on a map of what’s going on?
I have no doubt that the first year of 2016 will be the VR industry.
When it comes to VR, must mention the cool la (Oculus) by that name. The 2014-Facebook (Facebook) to $ 2 billion bid for the company is the global VR industry leader. They will be introduced in early 2016 first generation of mass-market commercial virtual reality head-mounted glasses Oculus Rift, is expected to sell for $ 400 or less. Of course, if the PC is required to use it, and all the equipment prices are likely to reach $ 1500. Just as when Netscape’s IPO marked the advent of the Internet age, Oculus Rift listing will also be VR era officially open historic signs. VR Shinecon headset
In order to enable Oculus Rift listed there and it matches the contents of Oculus has a focus on VR was established in January this year the company OculusStory Studio (Studio cool La story) and Pixar (Pixar) this animation carrier dug a number of top talent. In July of this year the company has premiered a VR animation short film “Henry” (Henry) of the trailer. In this trailer, Henry is a hedgehog, for his birthday that day to invite a bunch of friends for his birthday. Meet friends know him like a hug, but since he was stabbed, all fear, began to find excuses to … As an audience, can you walk, when you walked in Henry’s time, he will look at you and greet you, as if you live in the same world. In La Studio other VR short film “Lost” (lost), only when the viewers look to a particular direction or an object, movie plot will continue, this movie is a bit like mix of movies, games, and graphic novels. “Henry” and “Lost” the full version of VR produced a short film and several other Studio will and Oculus Rift introduced in parallel.
Meanwhile, other technology giants also coincide with the targeting of VR.

Video companies are galvanized. YouTube already has set up a 360-degree VR channel for watching video. Netflix and Hulu has also announced that it will launch its own VR applications.
