As a ‘meta’ experiment, first follow this link and read the article: here
Next follow this link and see the same story again but in a different form here
Now, think about how much more context and understanding of what was being described you got out of it from taking the information in video form. That’s the difference of going from a text based information representation to a 2D representation. Now, consider that if we had a 3D VR experience of the same article, instead of you just watching a video, you could experience it directly. That is the true power of VR and the part that is most difficult to convey to those who have never really tried it since there is no baseline to compare it to.
