FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – January 16, 2017, VR Motion Corp prepares for first public demo of its VR Showroom and Test Drive
Hillsboro, OR, January 16, 2017– VR Motion Corporation (VRMC) continues to develop its unique Virtual Showroom and Test Drive and plans to debut the combinations this week at Intel.
Immediately following Intel demo is the Portland Auto Show on January 26-29, where VRMC has developed a “Virtual Test Drive” Demo for Honda to allow potential buyers to experience a realistic test drive of the new 2017 Honda Civic Si.
In addition, VRMC has moved its headquarters to a new Development and Demo Center near its former location. The new center is significantly larger and will allow VR Motion to continue to develop world-class software solutions for the Global Automotive Marketplace.
“This has been a very productive time for us,” said Keith Maher, Co-Founder, and CEO. “The ability to begin to demo the Virtual Showroom and Test Drive experience to potential OEM customers and consumers alike is a large step forward in our progress. We continue to improve the product and processes that make our Virtual Reality simulation a game-changer in terms of not only how people make purchase decisions, but also how they experience and train for real-life driving experiences.”
Co-Founder and COO, Dominic Dobson, used a VR Motion racing simulator to train for the Pikes Peak International Hill climb with great success in 2015, winning the Unlimited Class and the prestigious Rookie of the Year award in his first ascent up the very tricky mountain course.
“The VR Motion simulator allowed me to virtually learn the demands of the 12.5 miles, 156 turn Pikes Peak Hill climb course before I even arrived there,” Dobson said. “Training this way allows drivers to develop muscle memory in a zero-risk, very low-cost environment, with a coach who knows the circuit and can provide feedback in real time. It is simply an amazing tool! I’m very excited to be working with Keith to advance the state of Virtual Reality as a tool for the future.”
