Over the last 12 to 16 months, the virtual reality space has received an increased amount of attention from both a technology and investment perspective. According to the PitchBook Platform, nearly $4 billion has poured into the space, driven primarily by VCs, with a growing interest surfacing amongst corporate investors and other asset classes. The concept of VR isn't necessarily new; however, the ability to manufacture a device that could adequately place users in a fully immersive environment had vast technological obstacles.
