Saw this piece at SXSW this year by one of our favorite creators, Felix & Paul Studios. Most VR video is less 10 minutes or less - this was pushing it at 20 min. Space Explorers was so good I could have watched for hours. And, the comfort and performance of the Go will enable those kind of watch times. That's a game changer for consumer #VR.
