Virtual reality has been in research labs for decades and over the past four years it has made its way to the consumers. While consumer VR has been widely targeted at the entertainment market, there is great potential for its application into real world problems. In this science and society dialogue, we will discuss the potential impact VR can have in serious application areas, ranging from learning and education to the advancement of a wide range of fields, such as health care, public safety and the humanities.
