(TheStreet) Amazon may be moving to create original virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) content. The Seattle-based ecommerce giant revealed its plans in a job posting for a “Virtual Reality Experience Development Executive” this week. According to the posting, Amazon.com is seeking to produce new content for innovative mixed reality experiences to be distributed on Amazon Video.
Amazon.com will be developing an app or service similar to the one released by Disney’s (DIS) Hulu streaming service earlier this year, according to sources cited by Variety. In March, Hulu unveiled a new virtual reality application for Samsung (SSNLF) technology.
