So far it appears to only be good for video games and porn. 

I figured we'd be able to get high quality access to the premier places and live events in the world by now. Who knows about this stuff? What's coming down the line?

Right now the big thing holding it back is hardware to process it.  You are essentially processing 2x the imagery.  The VR you get on phones, or the wireless headsets is really low quality.  You need a strong PC to be able to do higher resolution VR that would be "HD."  There is also a bandwidth issue and the fact that it is expensive.  There is more and more development being done all the time but I don't think you will  see anything mainstream for quite a while.  More is being done with AR.

Thanks! I envision a future VR service that would literally put you at a concert, football game, etc...

The big thing right now is eye tracking.  Currently with most VR, the only way to look around is to move your head, while it is immersive it isn't quite up to the level it could be.  Some of the new VR hardware finally supports eye tracking.  Also OLED 4k and 8k lenses.

I actually give money to a charity that sends VR to hospitals for sick kids to get away from it all.  They get access to a lot of the experimental stuff.

I just have a shitty homido thing that I have to put my phone in. My kids love to do roller coasters

Oculus Quest is basically the same thing.

I have an actual Oculus Rift, I play it some but mostly my daughter does, it makes me motion sick.
