How could we seize this opportunity？
VR is become more and more common in people’s life. And the person who like VR is also growing rapidly.
As Jan-peter said, this is an “ongoing investment”, it is a “Thriving market”, it is a good investment idea for us.
However, for most of us, non- professional person, research ,develop and sell VR programs is not very possible. It needs huge capital and professional knowledge.
The things we can do should be less skills requirement. For example. VR hardware and VR simulator, we can be a retailer of all kinds of VR hardware, or we can be a owner of VR business, investing an VR simulator, put it in a place with a lot of traffic.
Both of them are good ways for us to make some fortune in the VR trend.We do not need much capital at the beginning, do not need much professional knowledge.
