    this is really excellent, it would be good to do some kind of video blog about the first week of doing this? reactions, learned experiences, how OC helped people get to grip with the technology.

    Pretty cool man to do this, capture presentable information about it since this is a very positive move by OC here and helpful.

    you could put a nice you tube video together with your key staff and why you did this, what your staff feel about VR, what you hope to do with VR, your solutions, great chance for positive push into the future about this platform change.


    super!

    ott enthusiasm :)


    I am not aware of any other vendors (confirmed) making this kind of thing happen and its a great chance to document introduction of VR to market.

    Ah, the joys of text-based communication: I was genuinely unable to tell if you were being enthusiastic or sarcastic!

    above page could get a helpful short nicely polished video with the expected experience, a lot of people will and should make the trek into store to try VR especially if they are having a full on HTC vive room scale set up properly. Looking at the map it looks like they have a local school and also college, I think those places of learning could do with store invites to the teachers, I have just installed lecture VR myself from steam and will be testing this out tonight.

    I don't think 20minutes is enough!! people from 2 hour drive should make the effort to get in store !

    pictures / video of the demos would be great to the forums if any staffers here?


    exciting times.
