Virtual reality creates a fully immersive 3D environment that is very realistic.Using HTC Vive and Oculus Rift technologies it is possible to add a high degree of interactivity to this mix that takes it to another level.At Kadego we have identified three main uses of virtual reality for industry. These are virtual training, virtual marketing and virtual design review.
Virtual Design Review
Aesthetics is important in many design applications. Virtual reality allows you to review the design and make changes before spending a lot of money on the real thing.
Depending on the business and the product, virtual design reviews can be a very cost effective alternative to building prototypes. They may also give you the opportunity to check layouts and décor to ensure you are really getting what you think you are getting. Sometimes the ability to see things 1:1 in an immersive environment can give you an aesthetic preview that you would not otherwise be possible. It could be the difference between living with a mistake for a long time and fixing it before you really get started.
Using virtual reality can make a significant impact on your potential customer and strengthen your business case.
There’s nothing quite like being there, but virtual reality can get pretty close. If your client or potential customer has difficulty imagining the final product, virtual reality can be a useful tool in removing the need for any imagination at all. Demonstrating your product in a virtual world could tip the scales in your favour. In many cases the 3D design data needed for virtual reality may already exist or may be able to be re-used later in the design process.
Many people learn best from experience. Virtual reality can present a realistic environment to undertake necessary tasks without the cost or consequence of real failure.
Whether it’s a standard induction routine such as responding to an alarm or a potentially dangerous situation like diffusing a bomb, virtual reality can provide a realistic opportunity to learn from experience without assuming the risk or inconvenience that may apply to the real activity. We can create learning scenarios relevant to your business in a virtual environment that can be used to teach your personnel relevant necessary tasks in a realistic way that they are much more likely to remember than any power point presentation or questionnaire.
