Step Into The Matrix

Virtual Reality is no longer a thing of the past. People once thought that it would be impossible to implement such advanced technology, and that line of thinking was quite factual- until recently.

VR became a commercial tool for the average Joe to purchase and make use of when VR Gaming became available for gamers all around the world. You could put yourself into the shoes of a warrior, load up the Minecraft universe and experience it as though you were actually in it, or even become a SpecOps soldier and handle a variety of guns, all in the safety of the game of course.

Nowadays, VR is being sought after the mobile app development industry, and for good reason. It has many uses and benefits which have improved the quality of life for in many areas. Let’s take a look at some of these benefits.

Incorporate Virtual Showrooms

  1. Imagine you wanted to buy a large piece of furniture such as a couch or a decently sized dinner table. You would have to go to the store and check the dimensions of the furniture, make sure that it wouldn’t be too big the space you visualize where it would be, it’s a hassle really. Which is why some companies have implemented VR into an application they have designed. VR is being used in sales as well, whereby customers can use an application to see the product how it is, for example an article of clothing, so that when someone is doing online shopping, they can properly view the product from all angles.
  2. This technology is being used in automobile showrooms as well. Customers that are in the market for a new car can simply use the app with their VR gadget and get a real-time view of the vehicle they’re looking at, while making changes to the vehicle. This enables an ease of process when deciding the intricate details of the product that they’re viewing.

Customer Loyalty Improvements

When taking into consideration the lengths that a company would go to to provide their customers with a good shopping experience, if the customers do end up having an enjoyable time when shopping on your application, of course client-customer relations would get better. It shows customers that the company is willing to take such strides for the customers sake, so that increases the company’s reputation as a company that thinks about their customers.

VR’s Use In Travel

There are a few mobile apps that make virtual travel possible with the use of a VR headset. App developers  have figured out that they can create an app whereby people who have downloaded the app can travel to any place they want in the world – in virtual reality. The app enables people to take virtual reality trips so that you wouldn’t have to leave the comfort of your own home. The only expenditure you would be making for your trip to the Eiffel Tower would be the purchase of the VR headset.

VR And Real Estate

What’s the best part about looking for a new house? You drive around to a faraway location  on your day off, walk around in an unfamiliar neighborhood in the sweltering heat and sometimes, end up wasting your time because the house that you saw doesn’t come up to par with the pictures you saw online. The short answer is, nothing much is special about house hunting. Only now, with the help of VR and mobile app developers (External), there are apps that now come equipped with the ability for you to scour the property that you had your eye on, all from the comfort of your own home. The app, paired with a VR headset, enables you to virtually see every nook and cranny and every aspect of the house without physically being there. Real estate companies are taking advantage of VR and implementing it into their business to improve their user experience. This in turn, will help the company in terms of reputation and client-customer relation.
