Nextflix Zone: Virtual Reality (VR) Store

Netflix Experiments With A Virtual Reality Video Store (+Video)

Tyler Lee | May 24, 2016

Watching videos and playing games in virtual reality seems like the most obvious use for the technology, although as we have seen some companies try, shopping could be the next big thing. In fact the upcoming OnePlus 3 can be ordered in virtual reality and if that wasn’t novelty enough, how about looking for the Netflix title to watch in virtual reality?
Announced as part of Netflix’s Hack Day, the company revealed that during the event, one of the concepts created was a feature called Netflix Zone. Created by Joey Cato, Adnan Abbas and Marco Caldeira, this feature basically allows users to look for Netflix titles like they would in an actual brick and mortar video store, something that the younger generation might not be familiar with.
