Virtual Reality Development
Victory Enterprises is a national leader in virtual reality development.
“Walmart said.. it is providing Oculus Go virtual reality headsets to all of its US stores as part of a nationwide expansion of a VR-based employee training program. The big box retailer first experimented with VR in its training academies a year ago and now says the program has proved its worth, with employees reporting boosts to confidence and technology familiarity after training on the headsets.” — ZDNet News
Virtual Reality for hard-to-train tasks
VR can create a substitute for training that is:
R – So R A R E that it’s difficult to train for in standard training
I – I M P O S S I B L E to train for due to the recreation of the situation, like an underwater pipeline
D – A situation that is too DANGEROUS to put someone at risk in a training environment, like a live (and loose) electrical wire on a pole
E – Sometimes it’s too EXPENSIVE to train employees or volunteers in a unique situation. It might involve travel or time-consuming set up. In these cases, recreating the situation in virtual reality can be an affordable substitution.
Virtual Reality is a perfect solution if you
- Need to demonstrate a product at a trade show that is a large, small or too complicated to get into the show
- Have a training exercise that fits in the RIDE scenario (see above)
- Want to transport others to your place of business or a location where your product is at work
- Want an entertainment tool that is contained in a small space
- Want to create empathy with others in a less fortunate situation
- Need to train people on medical or veterinary procedures
What you should know about developing a project in virtual reality
- Small projects range between $5,000 and $7,500.
- Most projects cost $10,000 to $25,000.
- Our most expensive project was about $50,000.
- Virtual reality is seen in a headset and completely replaces the world around you.
- Augmented reality can be seen through a phone or a headset and is a 3D object super imposed over the real world. Think Pokemon Go.
- 360 Video is not quite virtual reality but is close enough to seem like it to most people.
- 360 Video costs less than full virtual reality creation. It can be seen on YouTube or within a headset.
- Robust headsets are connected to a computer via a cable. The computers need a robust graphics chip like the Nvidia 1060.
- Most untethered headsets cost between $200 and $650.
