The Virtual Reality Market
The Virtual Reality industry is set to touch $30 Billion by 2020. (source: digi-capital.com). With companies like Facebook, Samsung and Google having invested in Virtual Reality, the penetration of VR headsets in the market is happening faster than expected. While VR has caught the fancy of the gaming community, other forms of entertainment are fast catching up. Meraki aims to fill this gap by creating live action content in Virtual Reality.
Meraki creates Virtual Reality and Aerial experiences for Tourism, Advertising, Education, Events, News, Sports, Real Estate, Retail and Adventure.
