USA Today Wants VR-Storytelling For Daily News

Is 2016 the year of virtual reality? While many agree it is a fabulous new vehicle for storytelling, it is not quite mainstream yet. And that’s due to technological hurdles, according to David Callaway, editor-in-chief of USA Today, who is aiming to overcome these limitations to start routine VR-storytelling.

“The challenge for VR right now is to move itself from a kind of gee-whiz ‘this is cool to see’-technology to an actual storytelling environment, where we can bring people to different places on a regular basis, and not just show them part of a story, a protest march or even the aftermath of natural disaster, but where people can actually accept it as new rather than some kind of quirky visual thing,” Callaway told the World Editors Forum.
