A VR experience is nothing less than magical!

It puts you in a completely different atmosphere, giving you the chance to experience so many different and exciting things, from the comfort of your home! From thrilling adventures to wonders of the world, anything seems possible with the use of Virtual Reality.

So, where did it all begin?

Virtual reality has been a thing on the mind for so many years! From panoramic paintings in the 19th century to further development with the Stereoscopic photos and viewers created and developed in 1838 through to 1939! As time has gone on, this idea of a virtual reality has become more and more popular, becoming more widely recognised by the public through the 21st century!

How VR can be used for businesses

As you can see, VR is a growing trend, with so much out there, it’s bound to be beneficial to businesses we think here at Thriving Digital. When looking into virtual reality as a business prospect we have found that it can be a great initiative and fun way to boost your business and give customers a different way to look at your products!

For example, with real estate and property development, what’s better than a 360 tour? By giving this option to clients who are interested in your property, it means they are able to get a good feel of what the property is really like, without even having to visit it! It also means that your business is going above and beyond by giving a separate option to regular and standard photo image examples.

Another business prospect for the VR future is education. Schools could make great use out of this VR technology, giving children a more interesting approach to learning as oppose to generic and boring textbooks. It is well-known that different people learn in different ways, so this shows that virtual reality could definitely be a factor to help more children learn in a more enjoyable way. In addition to this, everyone knows that school trips can sometimes be a bit costly… not with Virtual Reality! With this great development., it means that you and your class can virtually visit different places over the World and learn about so many different things, sat in the classroom!

If you are interested in this technology and would like to learn more about how to utilise it for your business online, we are here to help.
