French Boatshed teams embrace VR technology

French Boatshed teams embrace VR technology

Tuesday, 07 February 2017

At the end of January brokers from Boatshed Bourgogne, Boatshed Midi Canals & Boatshed Paris got together for a seminar concentrating on the year ahead and a training session in the use of our new Virtual Reality technology. The Port of Decize is an ideal location with its comfortable hotel and chalet accommodation, a good restaurant and most important of all (for us) first class, modern conference facilities. Oh! and an excellent central heating system! It’s -9° outside but in spite of the cold in the air and the ice on the water our intrepid brokers all turned up for our 2 day event. 100% turn out .... Bravo! By enabling the use of VR on the Boatshed platform it is now possible to make a virtual visit of boats from “the comfort of your own home”. With a click of your mouse grab and turn the image up, down and around and "visit" the boat just as if you were there. For an even more immersive experience try looking at the images through VR viewers on your smartphone. It’s just like being on board!
