Forget 3D glasses, movie-goers of the not-so-distant future will enjoy a more immersive experience thanks to virtual reality headsets. 

Félix Lajeunesse, who forms half of the virtual reality creating duo Félix and Paul, is a pioneer in the world of cinema shot by 360 degree cameras.

He joins guest host Jelena Adzic to describe the rapidly improving art form, how close it is to hitting the mainstream, and how audiences will be transported on innumerable adventures — from Wild hikes with Reese Witherspoon to epic treks on the Mongolian steppes. 

q: Are you excited about the state of virtual reality? What are the most interesting possibilities for this technology, do you think?
