Hopefully, the future doesn't look like all of us wandering around with a vR headset strapped on our noggin all the time, but I can certainly see kiosks where a pedestrian can pick up any number of VR headsets to view all manner of things. I was using an app called "RoundMe" the other day which is like a social media imagery site for spherical photos of places, all linked in together with small map pins that open up new images of places "around" the image you are currently viewing. So if your viewing an image of the inside of the Vatican for example, a small map pin may pop up in the relative neighborhood of the image of the inside of the building which is the Sistine Chapel, and focusing your view on the map pin, opens a new spherical image of the inside of that room, and on and on with many, many related layers possible.
For those of us who have done work in the Real Estate photography world, it doesn't take long to imagine useful applications for that technology vs. current flat stills on a video monitor. It seems like a technology that the head of corporate relocations might want their relocation provider to invest in to save a few time & travel based "house hunting" trips. Using the VR headset in a nice comfortable conference room, or anywhere for that matter, to view the inside of the house, the neighborhood, the schools, the restaurants, the Museums and Music Halls of an area, all without ever setting foot in an airport or buying a plane ticket. As the manager of a corporate cost center, this would be a dandy and economical little bit of technology to utilize.
There are those in the field who vehemently oppose the use of spherical photography as a marketing tool for houses, or other things for that matter, but with the cost of a "Google Cardboard" VR headset for your mobile phone at about $6 US right now, and Apple selling one that evokes the "View Master" of my childhood, this technology is clearly getting traction and will only spread more over time as the preferred way to use visual imagery as a proxy for actually "being there."
Time to think through the potential applications and economies possible in your particular field and begin reaching out to professionals for examples and advice.
Ricoh is now selling top quality consumer enthusiast level spherical imaging devices appropriately named "Theta" for under $330 US, Kodak is getting into the game with the capable and rugged PixPro 360 with available accessories to weather protect it and good video capability. Other very high quality devices are on the way, some that may or may not be targeted to the consumer market, but more for enthusiasts or true professionals. Bubl, Sphericam, & others. There are Go Pro compatible devices that knit together the output from 6 to 10 cameras for awesome action sequences.
Get your viewer, download an app for your device, and start getting spherical.
