Today I experienced first hand what could turn out to be the end of the wedding brochure as we know it! I’m talking about Google Cardboard or the layman’s Oculus Rift. This was demoed to me by James Corbett of SimVirtua who is exploring opportunities for the hospitality industry.
Hotels could have their virtual tour filmed and then send out these foldable cardboard cases to couples who could then scan a QR code on the side of the cardboard, insert their phone and then have a fully immersive Virtual Reality experience of the wedding venue right from the comfort of their own living room!
Watch this space….. VR technology is improving constantly and I can easily envisage this becoming commonplace in a couple of years time.
