Virtual Reality (VR) beyond the hype – NXT BLD London, June 2017

 

VR is here and the buzz has been substantial. But is it something that you should be using or is it just a gimmick? How do I use it and, perhaps most importantly, why should I be using it? However, the question that supercedes all others, says Dan, is how can VR and real-time technologies generate value within a design business?
