Amazon Diving Into VR










Watching the wanted ads can do more than help you land a job, it can tell you what big companies are up to. Such is the case with Amazon. They have posted a job listing on Glassdoor.com that states, ‘Amazon Video is seeking a talented Senior Software Development Manager to lead our Virtual Reality team. This team is responsible for building the Virtual Reality experience within Amazon Video. Entertainment is evolving rapidly. The future will not be limited to passive 2D experiences. The Virtual Reality team will explore and create the platform and interface for immersive storytelling. This will include an ingestion and playback platform for Virtual Reality experiences.’

So part of Amazon’s Video Divison will be all about VR. Does this mean that we will be seeing a new VR Headset from Amazon? Only time will tell.
