"Done right, this can provide audiences with authentic, memorable and even highly emotional experiences."

"360 VR can also work with bodies such as the tourism industry to give audiences realistic samplings of certain adventures or experiences," she continues. "Providing the consumer with a better understanding of what they might hope to see or experience in turn drives the decision-making process."
