Inside of the Boardroom is a Big Screen monitor allowing users to showcase and share their presentation with their colleagues, people can talk to each other normally like you would in real life. Videos and images can be displayed on these screens and everyone in the boardroom can see it as if they were in the boardroom itself. Everything in the room is controlled by a Virtual Tablet and a Virtual laser pointer can be added to help users see where you are
pointing like a real-world Boardroom. We can customize the virtual reality remote working software to represent your company in Virtual Reality. You can have custom made boardrooms, custom made environments either representing real-world infrastructure or science-fictional environments. If you can imagine it, we can build it!

Products can be 3D modelled and placed inside the virtual reality remote working software and used inside meetings to showcase these products to clients all over the world, this is a great way to show people your product because they can use the headsets 6DoF technology to interact with it like picking it up, engaging with the product, or if it is vehicle even getting inside the vehicle.
