In typically bombastic fashion, Pornhub announced it's partnering with BaDoink VR to create a new, free VR channel on its site. The company's also giving away 10,000 Google Cardboard VR viewers to increase its viewer base. No, that's not a euphemism.

VR porn may not be the most inspiring use of a technology that can let people fly a virtual spaceship or experience life in a refugee camp. But it is important; the porn industry has been a key driver of technological adoption in the past, helping push both the VCR and cable TV to public use.
