What does Virtuality do?
Virtuality is a VR and AR content creation Company based in Dubai, UAE. We specialize in the design and development of VR and AR software for use in a wide variety of industries
What made you choose the HTC VIVE Pro?
We chose the HTC VIVE Pro early on as it is clear that HTC has positioned itself as the market leader in the HMD segment. Given we deliver high quality solutions, it is only fair to work with high quality hardware suppliers. Besides, after much testing, it is the only headset that our sensitive Head of Marketing didn’t get motion sickness on 🙂
What does the future look like for Virtuality?
Extraordinary. We have a talented team of artists and developers who spend time brainstorming new ideas and honing their skills to make these ideas come to life. Virtuality is always seeking to partner with different companies for their in-house training solutions, marketing strategies, and events.
What does the market for VR look like in general?
Promising. VR is a versatile tool that can be applied to a myriad of industries or businesses. As awareness of the technology increases, the onus will be on companies like Virtuality to create high quality content to keep user engagement. What’s exciting is that companies and individuals are starting to experiment with VR and imagining different ways they can apply to render processes more efficient. The timing is great for us!
How has HTC VIVE helped you along the way?
We have been able to experiment with our own ideas by using the HTC Vive Pro set up that we have in our studio. We get to see what works and what doesn’t, as well as explore already existing software. The HTC Vive team has been extremely supportive of our young business. In them, we’ve found a partner we can grow with and we look forward to many more projects.
