Until very recently, if you ever found yourself talking about virtual reality (VR), it was probably because you were cornered by a wild-eyed science fiction enthusiast breathlessly describing the holodeck on the USS Enterprise, the light cycles in the Tron mainframe, or dodging bullets in the Matrix. You almost certainly weren’t talking about business, and, let’s admit it, you were probably trying hard as possible to politely escape the conversation. But times have changed. If you think VR is still just for sci-fi nerds and gamers– think again.
Imagine sending your clients on an incredible journey they won’t ever forget. VR for business means that instead of telling clients how your product or service meets their needs, it’s now possible to show them.
From healthcare to entertainment, take a look at our top 11 favorite VR experiences. Be inspired by how different industries and big name brands are using virtual reality!
