Mark Zuckerberg recently said that “the future is virtual reality.” It is sure starting to seem that VR (Virtual Reality) is less about the future and more about the present. You can watch VR content easily and affordable at a pricetag of about $5 with Virtual Reality Cardboard from Google and Samsung’s $99 VR Goggles will likely be one of the hottest Christmas gifts this year.
I first experienced VR with the Oculus Rift goggles about a year ago and have been fascinated ever since. It is an immersive experience unlike any other media I’ve ever engaged with in the past. You really have to experience it to understand.
I will be blogging more about VR in the coming weeks, but I encourage you to go an experience VR for yourself whether buying the $5 cardboard or visiting a friend with Oculus Rift goggles and begin to dream about the possibilities around this technology for the church.
Do you think there really could be a Virtual Reality Church? I do, and I think it will be here before you would expect.
