VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) and the overall mixed reality space

have been on the radar of many over the past three years. Some landmark

developments in the sector include Facebook’s acquisition of Oculus (March 14),

Hololens launch (March 16), MagicLeap’s $500M round (Oct 14) and Playstation VR

launch (Oct 16) followed by crossing a million units (June 17). The sector is still in an early phase of development in India and globally- though in the past year or so some startups in India have got early stage funding. The use cases are also expanding from what was traditionally a medium for brand experiences and advertising to a wider set across industrial, real-estate, healthcare and many more. Globally, there are several significant developments in the VR/AR sector, including Facebook’s acquisition of Oculus (March 14), Hololens launch (March 16), MagicLeap’s $500M round (Oct 14) and Playstation VR launch (Oct 16), and which all indicate the emergence and growth of this sector in the coming days.
