Why low awareness about HMDs remain a challenge?

Awareness is the most important thing for any new technology to adopt on a mass scale. Understanding the specifications and various applications of an emerging technology is important for consumers.

Many of the users are not aware of augmented or virtual HMDs and how they are used. There is a strong lack of awareness about HMDs or VR headsets and smart glasses in the least developed or developing countries. People are not aware how HMDs can be used in various application areas, such as medical; industry and enterprise; consumer; and commercial. It is important to create awareness about the benefits of these products to observe acceptance among people or users. Hence, making people aware about the emergence of new technologies is one of the prime tasks of companies.

Companies in the industry are required to increase marketing activities to make people aware about the new products. The companies are adopting various strategies to make people aware about their products. For instance, in February 2016, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (South Korea) launched Galaxy S7. At the launch event, Samsung installed 5,000 Gear VR headsets, and at the time of showcasing the product, people present at the event could experience the product launch virtually by wearing the headset.
