Home Decor with the Oculus Rift Headset
The future with virtual reality as our new creative outlet promises to be almost limitless. A lot of business owners feel the same way, amongst them Spencer Rascoff (CEO of Zillow), who was seen fiddling with the latest Oculus Rift headset.
Let’s say you have to redecorate your entire house, within a tight budget. How much hassle would it be to take ten thousand trips to the market and even then come back not sure about what would look best? Imagine if you could visualize the perfect home, with exactly the unique style of décor that you would prefer for it. With the recent development of Oculus Rift’s virtual reality headset, this is not as impossible as it sounds.
Say for example that you come across a place like Amazon, except it’s dedicated exclusively to fulfilling your décor needs. You’ve just bought a house and come across this decorating wonderland but you’re frustrated and helpless because you can only take guesses at how things will look inside your home. You can’t say for sure if you buy the item and take it home that you won’t hate it the second you set it down where you thought you should. This problem can be tackled with the Oculus Rift headsets – once they become available for the main consumer market, of course.
Supposing you own these goggles and step into your home. You take a picture of whatever furniture you want in your new home and set it where you like, still using the virtual reality technology. Let’s say the love seat or dining table set doesn’t look good with the paint already on the walls. You click on the relevant data and voila, you realize that within a very small budget, you can get your entire house painted with the colors you like – and those that go with the furniture you already own. You will be able to order the paint job from professionals with just a couple of clicks.
Exactly the same way, you can order new furniture but before doing that, you need to check how it looks with your space. So you download the image from the relevant website and place the piece of furniture wherever you need it. If you like it, you can order it on the spot. If you don’t, no problem; go back to the website and look for something else to satisfy your décor needs. Similarly, your home can be fully decorated within a few hours and you’ll have so much fun choosing how and where you want everything.
