(UploadVR)  Bill Gates recently revealed that he has been working on virtual reality content–presumably in relation with his charitable foundation, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Looking at the educational landscape, Gates sees VR playing a big role in teaching design and engineering. Despite his optimism, Gates doesn’t think that all subjects will translate well to virtual reality.
“School is about motivation,” Gates told the crowd, “and if we can use [VR] to draw people in then that’s incredibly valuable.” Gates believes that “lower end” solutions like Google Cardboard will be important for adoption because “we won’t have to wait a whole decade before the accessibility is there.”
