With businesses spending about $2 trillion annually on technology overall, Microsoft’s HoloLens at $3,000 per transaction and Facebook’s Oculus Rift VR system at $600 look to get a chunk of that money from medical professionals, real estate, and other businesses. Nevertheless, gamers will have plenty of virtual reality to keep them occupied, while the tech giants continue to gain momentum in finding new VR uses in business applications.
