Amazon would be working behind the scenes on a virtual reality platform. According to a job listing which was placed by the company on a website. The person applying for the job is responsible for building the virtual reality experience within Amazon Video.
Is Amazon working on a virtual reality glasses?
Amazon may work on their own virtual reality platform, according to a job description which was put on the business online. The online retailer is looking for a senior software development manager for a new virtual reality team. It is not specified what that person has to work on, but it says that the person is responsible for building the virtual reality experience within Amazon Video. This is an ingestion and playback platform for Virtual Reality experiences that could work as Netflix.
This means that the online shopping site does not itself work on a virtual reality glass. At least, as far as you can see from the job – of course, we don’t know what the company developed behind the scenes. Furthermore, it seems that the company wants to offer 3D video on this new platform.
The future will not be limited to passive 2D experiences. The Virtual Reality team will explore and create the platform and interface for immersive storytelling.
Whether it is really the future remains to be seen. But it is certainly an interesting development.
