Do you wait until the company picnic or holiday season to show your employees how much they mean to your company? Employees need

If you have tried Virtual Reality (VR) before, it may have been to travel to a distant planet or play a tennis match on a gaming console. You may still think that VR is exclusively for entertainment; but it can be so much more. Today’s virtual environment can help develop new products, educate individuals and answer real-world challenges. 

Pragmatic VR Applications

  • Flight Training
    Atomic Motion Systems gives pilots real-world simulation experience with runway textures, gear shifts, flight turbulence and even engine stalls. It is compatible with most VR headsets.
  • Education
    Students can develop empathy for communities in crisis by stepping into their shoes, experience different careers first-hand or explore the human body from the inside out.
  • Designing New Products
    VR doesn’t just have the capability of designing a product with an engineer’s hands, but they can fully integrate their current workspace into the VR world. By wearing a Virtual Reality rental unit at the work desk and exporting the design to a rapid prototyper, the engineer can export it to the VR world and see it from a 3D prospective. In addition, other engineers can also view the design with their own VR headset. This is a very cost-effective way to streamline the product development process and testing cycle.
  • Construction Safety
    Virtual training can reduce safety accidents and since the training is virtual, safety coordinator travel costs can be eliminated. In fact, global construction company Bechtel has rolled out VR safety training worldwide that has proven to reduce the number of accidents since its inception because workers can test and retest real-world situations in a risk-free environment.
  • Destination Promotion
    Watching a video or viewing photos on the web, cannot “sell” remote destinations that meeting planners and leisure travelers might plan a meeting or take a visit. A VR trip is just the ticket to give both audiences what they need to make up their mind.

What You Need to Get Started

In order to fully integrate VR into your environment you need to determine whether you will be using an existing application or film the footage yourself. If it is the latter, you will need use of a 360 camera rental and someone to stitch the photography together.

Once the application process is complete, one or more VR headsets and a gaming PC rental unit is required.
