This month we introduced a brand new way to experience our stunning display homes. Taking advantage of the latest virtual reality technology we launched the Metricon Virtual Experience in Gippsland, regional Victoria.

The Metricon Virtual Experience enables potential home buyers to experience three of our most popular home designs by simply putting on a comfortable headset and enjoying crystal clear images with precise details that will bring the display homes to life before their very own eyes. All the while they are guided through the home by our experienced sales consultants.

We launched the Metricon Virtual Reality Experience in Wonthaggi in order to provide those in regional areas the opportunity to experience our great home designs. This removes the geographical challenge of driving long distances in order to view display homes.

Inside the Metricon Virtual Experience at our Wonthaggi Sales Office.

Our Managing Director Ross Palazzesi said that, "Metricon strives to be at the forefront of our industry so it is important that we embrace new technologies. The Virtual Reality Experience is not only exciting, because it is a first in Australia, but it is extremely practical. With a network of over 150 display homes nationally, Metricon has many new and popular designs on display however, it's a challenge to showcase every design in every market. Virtual Reality allows us to take display homes to consumers in any market, even international customers."

The three home designs that can be explored virtually at our Wonthaggi Sales Office are the Chelsea and the Denver from the Designer by Metricon range and the Delta from the Freedom by Metricon range.

The virtual display homes were brought to life by Melbourne-based company Scann3D who created the virtual imagery via the use of 3D scanners while Digital Experiential agency Traffik was very instrumental in the logistics of bringing the virtual experience to market.

Co-founder of Scann3D, Steven Kounnas said, "With such growth in the Australian home building industry there are more display homes than ever to visit. It is wonderful to see a company such as Metricon using emerging technologies to make the display home visit more efficient and enjoyable for many Australians."

So far the response has been extremely positive and we have received some exciting press coverage, including articles in the Herald Sun as well as on blogs such as techAU. Our General Manager, Victorian Housing Peter Langfelder even made an appearance on Sunrise. Head over to the Sunrise website to watch his interview.
