I’m incredibly excited for the much-promised virtual reality era that sits just on the horizon. I’m excited because I’m a gadget nerd, a gamer, and a sci-fi lover. VR is poised to transform how I play games, watch movies, shop, how I use social media—maybe you’ve heard the lofty promises. But the aspect that has me behind VR the most? Photography. Professionals, amateurs, everyone in between—it’s all going transform the visual media that we create and view every day. Photography is primed to be the “killer app” for virtual reality. Allow me to summarize my thoughts on the topic.

The Stockholm Virtual Reality (SVR) Meetup was created in July 2014, after two VR enthusiasts lacked a platform to exchange ideas and discussions centered on Virtual Reality topics in Sweden. And for Stockholm – nowadays called one of the most innovative regions outside of Silicon Valley – it seemed just a big flaw to not have a platform that gathers local VR enthusiasts, spreads the word about VR, and sets out to follow in the footsteps of awesome meetups like the Silicon Valley Virtual Reality Meetup (SVVR).

Virtual Reality is one of the most disruptive technologies to arise in the coming decade. There is an infinite amount of applications that will transform countless industries – from gaming and simulation to education and entertainment, to quote just a few. Despite the recent spike in Virtual Reality developments, there are still only a few players currently dominating the VR space and most of them are unfortunately not focused on consumers.
