When we think about virtual reality, most of us probably think of video games. But like the smartphone, VR is going to change everything in business too.
Technologies that change the world of business used to come along once in a generation, but in the past 25 to 30 years we’ve seen quite a few: the PC, the web, the smartphone. Virtual reality (VR) is poised to become the next big thing.
As well a many training application virtual reality shopping is well on its way to being commonplace. eBay, Ikea, ASOS to name a few are already ramping up to turn VR experiences into selling tools. Imagine a world where consumers can view products in a virtual environment before they buy.
With larger business starting to exploit the benefits of VR this will in turn bring about affordable VR tools for smaller businesses enabling them too to exploit these benefits for their products and services.
VR is something I’m personally very excited about and I can’t wait to see where it takes us.
