At its Connect presentation this morning, Oculus has announced a new VR bundle aimed at business use. The company is calling it the Oculus Rift Business Bundle and hopes that it will help companies with demos, training, and sales. The bundle includes the Rift, a set of controllers, and extra sensors for room scale VR.
In addition to the extra hardware, the bundle also includes a commercial license, enterprise warranty, dedicated support for business, and the option for bulk ordering. Oculus announced that one of its first Oculus for Business partnerships will be with Audi. The automaker will use the Rift VR system at its dealerships to let customers demo new cars and SUVs in virtual reality. The software will allow prospective customers to build and customize an Audi and stroll around the car before they buy.
The company promises that the Oculus Rift for Business bundle will improve productivity by allowing for new types of training and teleconferencing. Oculus is making a push for businesses to adopt VR as the go-to tool for communication and visualization.
