VR headsets become standard office equipment

Forgot your VR headset? You’re going to be left out of the conversation without it in future. According to some people, office communication will be completely VR-based.

The workspace finds itself at the crossroads of non-traditional employment norms; future-forward technologies like virtual reality (VR) offer a new opportunity to collaborate with co-workers.

Fully immersing into the metaverse, business-to-business (B2B) marketing agency The Starr Conspiracy has recently added virtual reality headsets to its office tools as it migrates its office to the metaverse. 

Similar to most organizations during the pandemic, the company shifted to remote work and has become “digital-by-default” for meetings. But the virtual collaborative work left employees feeling isolated from each other.

So, the agency turned to the metaverse. It trained a small group to connect using VR, and as more employees get up to speed, the company plans to have happy hours, trivia nights and meetings in the metaverse.

“The pandemic has given us the license to innovate and find bold ways of working that support people in the flow of work, look out for their well-being, and can tap into human creativity,” Bret Starr, CEO, co-founder, and partner of The Starr Conspiracy, said.

Integration

A recent report from the World Economic Forum (WEF) highlighted the significance of integrating the virtual and physical worlds. The WEF study notes that VR will eventually expand to include all our senses, and these “real virtualities” will become part of everyday life.

In the near future, real virtualities will create opportunities for companies and individuals, allowing them to buy and sell virtual goods and services – something that is already happening on multiplayer gaming and other platforms. These could include using digital currencies, onboarding employees, creating virtual prototypes or digital twins of industrial processes.

According to WEF artificial intelligence (AI) is also a technology that will soon be incorporated into many organizations. It will help in identifying data patterns in real time, helping to anticipate trends and inform decision-making.
