Sony Green of Kineviz explores "Why VR is, and isn't, the future of Data Visualization" in a new Medium post.
As non-gaming applications of VR* continue to gain attention, data visualization has become a topic of some debate. Advocates claim that VR is going to revolutionize how we work with data, while critics maintain that nobody will ever strap on a headset to do something they can already accomplish in a spreadsheet.
At Kineviz, we agree with both camps. We believe VR’s true potential lies not in replacing traditional tools, but in creating new ones. We’ve reached this conclusion by focusing on use cases.
