Metricon and SCANN3D launch take-home virtual reality headsets

Australia’s leading home builder, Metricon, has recently launched virtual reality to the mass market with the introduction of take-home VR headsets. The latest offering from Metricon’s interactive customer experiences invites prospective owners to explore over 90 different Metricon designs, all from the comfort of their own home.

Coinciding with the building industry’s busiest period, with Metricon anticipating a 35% increase in February traffic to its display homes compared to its monthly average, the VR headsets will be available to potential customers in the market for a new home from February 2017.

Utilising 3D tours previously generated by Australia’s leading immersive media company, SCANN3D, customers can browse virtual display homes with nothing more than their smartphone and Metricon VR headsets, available for collection from any Metricon display home nationally.

Co-Founder of SCANN3D, Steven Kounnas, said the virtual reality experience is one that is ready for the mass market. “Consumers are hungry for experiences that are hands on and truly immersive, and VR ticks all the boxes. We’re excited to be working alongside Metricon to roll out the tech on such a large scale.”
