I think it is really cool that the players can get a feel for the way the pitcher pitches before meeting them. This takes sports to a new level.
I also thought this was interesting. Rather then seeing half of whats going on when a story is being told you are able to see the full scenery which allows you to fully experience whats going on.
I love scary movies, so i would love to be able to watch one with VR. Just like the other article said you would be able to experience everything in the room rather than just what they want to show.
