The Conversation

In this conversation, Vinay talks about HTC Vive’s strategy as it relates to VR, AR, and 5G. And from his vantage point at HTC, Vinay shares advice for both investors and startups.

He believes in-home adoption for VR will scale only after there is a reason to use VR outside of the home. It’s at work where he sees ROI & investment happening today. He notes that content may be king, but only if there is a kingdom.

He also provides his perspective on building a community and creating an impact on the ecosystem.
