Travel World VR / Travel
Travel World VR is a new platform for viewing 360° virtual reality travel videos. Company founders John Graham and Steve Perillo ask, “Can you imagine a better time to launch a virtual reality travel app?” The company started as a promotional service for destinations, resorts, cruise lines, tour operators and attractions. But the fully-immersive 360° experience has now captured the home-bound audience of armchair travelers.
UCLan / Manufacturing
A UK manufacturer has moved its main premises using digital support from a University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) business programme to map out the move virtually while in lockdown. The virtual factory was incorporated into VR headsets, enabling management and the company’s 55 members of staff to test the flow of the site before it was installed.
