You might be wondering what the benefits of VR presentations in the architectural industry are. Well, the good news is that we have been working with VR presentations for some time and have a list of our top benefits of VR presentations. We hope that you will come away seeing the power of VR and with Yulio it couldn’t be easier to start incorporating VR into your workflow.
The Benefits of VR Presentations
With VR, Demand the Attention of Your Audience
In a VR presentation, especially when utilizing a headset, the focus shifts away from the external environment, and individuals become deeply engrossed in the virtual world. This immersive quality becomes a valuable asset for presenters, ensuring the undivided attention of the audience without the distractions of the physical surroundings. This exclusive focus guarantees that the crucial information and visuals seamlessly integrated into the VR presentation are not only seen but also absorbed.
When wearing headsets, your audience has nothing else to focus on other than your presentation
The science behind immersion further underscores the significance of this medium. Studies show that immersive experiences are more memorable, and individuals tend to retain information better when fully engaged. With VR, there's a heightened chance that the audience will not only absorb the presented information but also retain it for an extended period. As a presenter, this means your key points and visuals have a better chance of standing out in the minds of your audience, creating a more impactful and enduring impression.
Easily Communicate with Better Spatial Awareness
A common communication issue that happens in architecture presentations is accurately showcasing spaces with scale. Your drawings and mockups can be properly labeled and drawn accurately, but for a non-design-based audience that image may not be enough for them to understand how big or small a space could be fully. Even informing them of the dimensions isn’t enough as their mind may not be able to pull accurate references of what that space could look like.
When you use VR, the stereoscopic nature of the technology adds depth to your project and when one uses a phone or headset to view your project in VR, they will get a very accurate feeling of how big your space is. It’s the most realistic way to preview a project or concept and see something as close to the final project. And even those without a design or architectural background will be able to walk away with a better understanding of what you want to deliver.
Site visits are commonplace in any architectural project. Clients will often come to check in on the progress of the project and see how the vision is coming to life. However, depending on the client, that journey could be far and expensive. With VR and remote access, you can give your clients other options that could lessen how often they need to come in and check progress.
Share projects like this with just a single link
With VR software like Yulio, you can share VR projects with just a link and viewers can access them from their desktop or even their headset if they have one. If your client is looking for live updates, you can also use 360 photography to create a VR project that showcases the progress of your projects. These types of projects can also be created and shared with Yulio with a single link.
Innovate Your Storytelling Capabilities
When presenting your VR project, you want to have a strong concept and a unique way of showcasing your vision to clients, all while being able to “walk” your client through the space. You want to tell a story about a space and project that draws your viewers in and lets them see the space how you want them to. With VR you get even more direct control over how your audience can see a project and you can tailor your VR presentation to best tell the story you want
Start Taking Advantage of the Benefits of VR Presentations
