    Has anyone ever done a demo in VR?

    Apple have an event coming up where they’re rumoured to be launching their VR glasses.

    My sales manager has been banging on about this all week.

    For what we sell, being able to visually show things in 3D without being onsite could be very useful.

    Has anyone else seen this in action on a sales demo?

    I’m watching this closely as well.

    You seen this? –

    I sell medical consumables (ortho implants) and a “VR demo” has been talked about a lot over the past couple of years.

    Being able to ship a demo batch of implants and then talk the surgeon through them remotely with a 3D presentation would mean I could deliver 3x more presentations each week.

    I think the hardest part is getting the equipment to a surgeon, having it all be ready to go and charged, getting past any additional tech set up… there is just too much friction to do this remotely which is where this would be the most useful for me.

    Got an idea at a trade show a couple of weeks ago that I’m trying to implement.  I sell car wash equipment and price tags are in the millions so it’s a long sales cycle and people want to see it but travel sucks for everyone… A lighting company had a VR headset that you could sit down and watch their light show at a car wash like you were going through the car wash.

    The video is expensive and takes time to build and you can’t tailor a demo to everyone individually, but you could do your equipment demo that way.  The cheat for the VR headset is a smartphone.  There are apps and cardboard headsets (about $15 on Amazon) that you can ship to the lead ahead of time and then walk them through setting up the app and playing the VR experience on their smartphones.

    Like most things right now, not perfect but getting closer.  Maybe this thought can help you Aleeza.
