Virtual reality technology is giving builders and remodelers a huge opportunity to improve their business by showing buyers what their home will look like before a single hammer nails down anything.
Wired writer Tim Moynihan sifts through the latest technology in virtual reality and what's about to be released, so you can decide whether to buy now or wait a few months (or years). The options available now aren't great solutions for a business purpose. The Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR are both simple and cheap solutions that rely on phones and kills their battery power.
However, in the future, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Sony PlayStation VR, will let users actually move around a room and taken in the views of their future home. All three options will be available in the next few months.
