tvOS Like Interface for Apple VR?

Layers of The Parallax Effect
With everyone joining in on VR, one must question how will Apple execute vrOS? Here's an idea I came up with. tvOS uses large, block-style icons for navigation. The buttons allow for layered icons, which offer a sense of immersion. This is called the Parallax effect. It's a bit difficult to explain, so it's pictured below. Such a cool, subtle feature would go to waste on Apple TV, one of Apple's less popular platforms? What if tvOS interface mechanics were recycled in a vrOS interface. Meaning, if Apple made a VR headset, certain features on the Apple TV would be used. It wouldn't be too surprising. The Touch Bar in the MacBook Pro uses a modified version of watchOS. You could even use the Apple TV remote as a controller for vrOS, Perhaps tvOS had more potential than we first thought.
