  • What do you think it’s the most interesting thing coming about VR+web?
  • Finally there is a tech with WebVR, that the web is not behind desktop tech – but actually leading the pack. By 2016 when the technology matures, all you need to do is go to a shop, buy a headset, plug it in your computer, open a website, launch it and without downloading any special plugin or any hacking, you can dive in to any VR experience (e.g.: interactive museum exhibits, games, etc…) the site could offer.
  • What was the feedback for the TVs?
  • We had great feedback, people were very excited about it. André Fiedler took the TV on the weekend to a “TV Hack Day” - they uncovered a few bugs, missing features but also put together a lot of great stuf. Next year’s version of the TV is going to be “bigger&better” on features, but it is pretty cool already.
  • If you have a chance to visit a Mozilla office - all offices should have an FxOS TV by now!
