In other news, at Oculus Connect 2, we learned quite a few things about the Oculus Rift, Gear VR and virtual reality overall. Firstly, social VR will be like hanging out with someone or something in person.

According to Will Shanklin of gizmag.com, when he put on a GearVR and sat in a virtual living room with two other reporters and witnessed a Twitch Stream, it felt like he was really there. He revealed that they were only represented by masks but whatever they said and when they acknowledged him, it felt like he was sitting in a real room with a more intimate human interaction.
