Re: Land Rover VR
Yes I've noticed this too! I find it very interesting and I think that the automobile industry are becoming more and more engulfed in the technology industry.

Re: Land Rover VR
I see it as a natural evolution of the FEA Modeling pioneered by companies like MSC Software and ANSYS that have been able to be at the forefront of transformation of the Time to Market--and indeed being able to visualize the entire experience is something that is indeed fascinating to be witness to.

Land Rover Boosted by VR Technology
This is exciting that Land Rover has plans to develop a virtual version of their factory floor to optimize manufacturing processes. If all automobile companies implement VR, it would reduce the number of driver injuries and deaths due to automobile malfunctions as well as manufacturer recalls.

I am not a fan of Land Rover but do like the VR feature that many automobile websites offer that lets viewers customize an automobile.

Land Rover VR
A major shift has occurred. The automobile sector has now moved into the IT industry using video technology to advertise to consumers and to design automobiles and solve space problems.

It is great the VR was used to solve design and space problems and help the company prevent a manufacture recall.  VR has allowed Land Rover to maintain its brand, style and features that consumers love while streamlining the appearance of the vehicle.

Re: Virtual for automobiles etc.
@faryl - CPR/First Aid would be a great idea! You could put people into scenarios that are far more realistic. Yesterday I saw a roll over accident, actually witnessed it happen and was one of the first people to pull over. I've been trained in first aid and CPR for almost two decades now (continually having my certification renewed) but I have never truly used it in a real life scenario. Even yesterday, where it might have come in handy (firemen arrived on the scene within minutes, the person was trapped in the car) I was hesitant just because while I have the book knowledge, my real life experience is so lacking I doubt my abilities. Sure I've performed CPR on the dummies countless times. But actually doing it on a person, in an emergency situation, that is a completely different story.I think it would also be good to have some kind of VR training because you can assess what people might panic in a real life emergency and not actually be able to perform the duties they have been trained to do. I know over the summer a man drowned in a wave pool while life guards sat and watched. Life guards are typically teenagers and while they might have good intentions, if they have never been exposed to a real life emergency, it's not at all unheard of for them to panic rather than help.

Re: Virtual for automobiles etc.
Consumer use (beyond entertainment) sure would be cool though! I could see the healthcare and education sectors taking advantage of VR in the consumer setting. Learning first aid/CPR, exposure therapy for phobias, having kids "go" somewhere for homework...

Re: Virtual for automobiles etc.
@dcawrey - I think you're right. I think even more than time, most consumers are concerned about investing the money in VR right now. But if it works for businesses and engineering purproses, it might just have a shot. I think I even suggested in a previous thread the possibility of using it in classrooms. Maybe a science classroom where kids have to "disect" an animal. I could see real value in them disecting a virtual animal over a real one.

Re: Virtual for automobiles etc.
As a long time Land Rover owner - I'm not surprised to see them embracing this type of technology and harness for a not-so-obvious use.  When I saw the Evoque I was wondering how they would achieve what is a dramatically different design but still with a "Range Rover" look.  This explains a great deal.  I'm curious to know how close to reality the VR is with regard to the actual ride.  Until I drove one, I wasn't sold, now I get it.  I wonder if the same will come across through VR.
