With jargons like these thrown around, it is not surprising that business executives find virtual reality headsets to be an intimidating arena. When we were young and naïve, we would aim to bedazzle executives with such high-falutin technicalities.

(If you happened to be one of them and are reading this, allow us to take this chance to apologize!)

- User experience (immersion, clarity)
- Ease of use / availability in Singapore
- Cost, with its related consequence to content distribution.
