Let’s be honest, virtual reality is not all fun and games. VR is breaking into the enterprise. When you think virtual reality, you immediately think entertainment and games. Now, thanks to the recent buzz around Oculus VR, we are eagerly anticipating a major impact on the enterprise in many different ways.
At Bottle Rocket, we are actively working with large brands to build VR strategies for use in numerous ways ranging from safety in the enterprise to brand engagement. Check back early next year to see several fully deployed solutions for major brands. We’ll be able to discuss more in the next few months.
Here are six ways virtual reality can be used in the enterprise:
Sensors are everywhere these days. With massive amounts of data being collected every second, we must find new ways to distill it and understand its value. VR creates a very immersive way to surround yourself in data instead of looking at the same old 2D charts and graphs. From geological surveys to medical visualization, VR can provide a new perspective on how we interpret and manipulate data.
A common challenge for high-risk industries such as fire safety, mining and the military is how to provide safe safety training. Virtual reality simulation allows for the development of expertise, quick problem-solving and decision-making under stress without the trainees being in harms way.
Virtual Reality allows users to have a natural interaction with a virtual product to determine out how to optimize product performance, test design principles, safety, and more. This interaction in turn allows for more communication between departments.
What about your average office worker? Employees can now collaborate by sharing presentations and documentation virtually rather than printing, emailing or projecting in a meeting room. Picture an office where everything is available in VR and desks and common areas are completely clutter free.
Today's students are learning in completely connected environment but, with constant contact comes constant distraction. VR provides a new way to immerse students in learning. Imagine following George Washington into battle or taking the role of Neil Armstrong during the first moon landing. They are virtually on-site making decisions and learning from them.
In virtual worlds, people can create avatars and socialize in a way we have never seen. From the virtual boardroom to the bar, a wide range of networked experiences will form the metaverse of virtual human connection.
According to a report by MarketsandMarkets, the virtual reality market is expected to grow to $407.51 million and reach more than 25 million users by 2018. Bottle Rocket has been hard at work with clients, internal labs and partnering with Samsung and Oculus. We see an amazing trend. (Source)
