VR News: It’s not just on the plane that VR is taking over the aircraft industry, its also in the departure lounges!

My Thoughts on this Story: Anything that helps raise VR’s public profile gets my vote and a pop-up VR arcade at an airport as big and more importantly busy as JFK is a great win. While it would be far better to have it implemented on the planes themselves, it’s still a nice touch to have it in the resting suites. Just as long as there aren’t any fear-inducing apps that feature plane crashing it should keep people amused while they wait for their planes and might even get even more interested in VR as a whole.
