For an important speech in front of a small audience, the game is worth the candle.
Let's say, you want to persuade investors to put up their money in a new entertainment center. Usually, you would have to carry the architectural drawings or a physical layout of the complex to the meeting, which look toylike and do not give a clear vision of what it would look like.
But if you bring virtual reality glasses with you and prepare a 3D tour for investors in advance, you can achieve a completely different effect of immersion and presence. Investors will clearly understand where their money goes — they will be able to visit the entertainment center and walk there, even despite the fact that the building only exists in the blueprints.
Another application of virtual reality is speech rehearsals. We found two services where you can run a presentation in front of a virtual audience:
You can choose the number of listeners, their gender, nationality, etc. The first service also allows you to get feedback on your performance, so you can improve your speech by iteration. Thus far, this option is available only for speeches in English. We tested these services and we will certainly share our impressions in the upcoming articles.
