James Cameron talks about Oculus Rift and VR

Cameron was asked some interesting questions during his Reddit AMA session. Cameron was asked on whether he would be making any movies using VR devices, such as the Oculus Rift, where he said: “I personally would be very interested to find a way to incorporate VR and a narrative-filmmaking experience. So a narrative directed experience that has individuated pathways where you have choices that you make in real-time, I think that would be a lot of fun”.
