There is a quote which says, “the only thing that is constant is change”. This rings true today more than at any point in time in human history. Technology is moving so fast and disrupting the way we do business so much that 10 or 15 years from now, most businesses and industries as we know them will not exist.
This week we will discuss about a particular technology that is generating a lot of noise and excitement; Virtual Reality. We have heard names of devices such as HTC Vive, Facebook’s Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear being thrown about but do we understand what is it they do and how they impact how we live and do business?
What is Virtual Reality (VR)?
Virtual reality is a three-dimensional, computer generated environment which can be explored and interacted with by a person. That person becomes part of this virtual world or is immersed within this environment and whilst there, is able to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions.
Here are just a few areas where VR could impact your business
Organisations have already begun to use VR in a number of ways helping them to reduce costs, lessen business travel, conduct interviews, give tours and hold meetings. Instead of traveling for a conference or meeting, or even interviewing a candidate “face to face,” companies are using virtual conference rooms.
In addition, businesses such as car manufacturers are also using VR to test safety and functionality without risking the health of employees. This is because VR gives cars engineers the ability to test the safety of vehicles in a virtual setting before actually manufacturing them.
There is rising interest in using VR in business presentations. VR can be perfect for product launches, HR Training and audience activities to provide an immersive and experiential experience. For instance, you can increase your presentation impact by showing your audience your vision with a VR headset.
Again, from our earlier example, car manufacturers such as Volvo, use VR in their sales process as well by having potential customers use a VR headset to test drive vehicles.
There are exciting opportunities for VR, however you will not be able to take advantage of them without a fast and reliable internet service for your business. VR will not be of any use to you if you cannot implement it because of the internet or lack of thereof.
