"OCULUS should talk to NETFLIX about Oculus GO become part of a Netflix subscription"
Reasoning: One of the reasons for the quick and wide distribution of mobile phones in the last 20 years (from a simple tech gadget to an overall technologie), was the way of distributing the market. The expensive and - technically new and unknown - phones were parts of (often 24 month or longer running) phone contracts. And in the beginning, the phones were high subsidized, to build up a market. Consumers paid only little money every month, but get the hardware from the first day. And the "risk" of buying a new - and unknown - technology wasn't high that way. That should be the blueprint to spread the Oculus GO to the mass market (representative for the whole VR technologie).
Comment: Being on the road with my VR experiences (The Flying Broom and Windturbine VR) for over three years now, I put VR goggles on thousands of peoples heads. What I learned is: You can't explain VR - and customers can't imagine VR. Unless you try it out! That makes advertising and selling VR goggles so difficult. No one (except the first nerd generation) pays much money for an unknown thing. So, in case of VR - it's not enough to spread the word! You have to spread as many goggles as you can and let as many people as you can try it. And with the GO, there is now a fantastic, easy (and cheap) way to spread VR goggles - with the help of a (special) NETFLIX subscription. Even, if this would mean, to sell the GO as a kind of "video glasses" first. (The customers will learn, what VR really means, seconds after putting on the glasses ;-) ) . And by spreading the hardware, the VR Shop and everything else will be growing automatically. This would help us all.
So, don't spread the word - spread the GO!!
