My kid gets it.
Virtual reality is fun. VR is useful. VR is immersive.
He loves jump into VR to play baseball or bowling in Sports Scramble. He really loves wandering around Wander to see a 360 street view of almost anywhere in the world and at different dates in the past. His favorite is Richie’s Plank Experience where he can not only ride an elevator all day but also call up the creepy drill guy and giant spider.
I think he gets the value of VR in its purest form. You can be anywhere, be anyone, and experience any time. He loves VR.
