Last week in partnership with Jigsaw24, EVCOM was invited to HP‘s Customer centre to explore the possibilities of VR technology.

Oliver Kibblewhite from REWIND started the session by explaining the types of VR and focused on how technology has been used in their recent case studies. We took a look at how Roborace created an experience at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed by becoming the first-ever fully autonomous and driverless electric racing car to tackle the famous FOS hill.

Next up was their Jaguar I Pace Concept Launch an experience which to this day has changed the way we think about automotive launches. Having said “we didn’t help ourselves by making it live” they streamed three live presenters over two continents so guests could receive real time answers to their questions.

Jaguar’s use of VR means product launches will never be the same again” – IBTimes.

Jaguar just showed us the future of car launches” – VRFocus

I attended the Jaguar VR car launch and press events will never be the same” – Upload VR

Lastly Oliver explained the concept of Mixed Reality, an idea which is already in development and will change the way we respond to all technology in the future – find out more by clicking here. If you haven’t already tried Virtual Reality, this is an area everyone needs to pay attention to.

This is not just science fiction anymore“.
