Coming into Q2 of 2017, the concept of ‘reality’ is top-of-mind for many in the media and business worlds. Virtual reality has been the topic of much speculation. Even since before Atari released its seminal Atari 2600 video game console in 1977, developers and entrepreneurs have been trying to place humans inside of storylines that are beyond this world.
Virtual reality is projected to be a $5.2 billion industry in 2018. The technology is impacting fields from video gaming to professional sports to healthcare, event planning, and construction. After decades of hype, true VR experiences finally appear to be scaling at a level that make them affordable to the average American. Let’s take a look at a few of the biggest influencers in the field right now and how they are applying virtual reality technology into our everyday lives.
Texas A&M University is among the first to launch concept3D's new virtual tour software: Xplorer Virtual Tour, a powerful VR-enabled system that Texas A&M is using to give visitors an impressive and realistic way to experience campus life from anywhere in the world. Xplorer makes it easy and fun for visitors to explore Texas A&M on their own terms and at their own pace, and the system is easy to update and customize.
Xplorer Virtual Tour can be utilized for its capabilities as a stand alone system, or as an add-on module to concept3D's CampusBird interactive map platform - used by hundreds of universities, colleges and schools.
With so many options to choose from for convention centers, theaters, and other event spaces, luring event planners really comes down to two things: presence and convenience. While both may seem like standard procedure for convention centers and other large-scale event venues, it’s important to think about how the message is coming across to the event planner. Are they aware of perks that speak to their organization or clientele? How hands-off will their event be once the doors open? How easy it is to find that perfect space and get all of their needs met?
concept3D is excited to announced that Massachusetts General Hospital has launched a new interactive campus map powered by our atlas3D platform.
With atlas3D, the Massachusetts General Hospital’s campus is built atop Google Maps in detailed, 3D models and navigable by desktop and mobile, giving online visitors the ability to find their way to the campus, locate parking, and get walking directions.
The buzz around virtual reality is drawing attention worldwide, which begs the question for convention center professionals: How can I incorporate this modern technology into our marketing efforts?
Because VR is endlessly customizable, including VR content as a sales tool can be an extremely effective way to create an immersive experience and get your message into the hands of event organizers and meeting planners.
