Stefan Wesley, CEO and founder of Bicester-based Sigma Digital explains that, while VR has been the talk of the tech industry for years, finally there is a way to introduce VR technology into businesses.
VR technology is now available without having to pay through the nose, meaning that businesses can take advantage of many great solutions that are not only great fun and innovative but save businesses time and money while reducing risks.
Sigma Digital has recently been testing VR technology as a solution for meetings and presentations for existing clients around the UK. The best thing about it is anyone can get access to the software and it’s completely free. The app is called vTime and it’s available on Oculus, Samsung Gear HR, Google Play, Google VR, Daydream and finally the software we are currently using, App Store.
Once you have the app on your device you’re going to need some hardware. We selected two sets of virtual reality glasses to test out the app in the beginning. First choice was the VOX+ BE that retails at just shy or £40 and the second was the VR BOX that retails at around £7. To our surprise the VR BOX was a lot more compatible with the iPhone 7 and 7plus so save yourself a few pounds and stick with the cheaper option if you’re an Apple user.
So you have now bought yourself a Virtual Reality headset and installed the vTime app. Next, it’s time to create your avatar. The app is still pretty new as far as we are aware but there are enough selections available to make something that resembles you. This is where the fun really begins.
Check out our testing of the app at our Bicester office and see some of the great Virtual Reality features that are available:
Find VR that intriguing? Our clients have tried and tested VR meetings with the Sigma team and so far, they think it is fun, innovative and extremely practical.
