This virtual reality-powered training clinic helps nervous first-time DIY project undertakers to practice their home improvement skills. From retailer Lowes, the Holoroom How To is a VR training course.
Although VR technology has been used in the design and home space before, this is a much more immersive and interactive experience for homeowners. The training clinic teaches building and decorating skills with simulations and step-by-step instructions for different projects, such as shower tiling. Fittingly, it also tells you what materials you will need to buy. Haptic feedback via headsets and controls provide a hands-on approach to learning. Lowes also plans on using their findings from their three locations (two Canadian and one in Massachusetts) to better train staff on customer needs.
