Scandiweb Stories recap for February 2017 — we are not catching up, we are ahead

Virtual Reality in your browser

From classic to innovation, we are glad to tell you that Scandiweb has developed first web-based VR solution for Teak Furniture. Challenges were the following:

  • No similar solution on the market
  • Multi-device and resolution support
  • Browser crashes, since they do not officially support VR solutions

How did we handle this? Well, we did several things as:

  • Rapid prototyping and iteration as there was no similar solutions or body of knowledge to explore
  • Mobile device and browsers benchmarking to understand technological grouping and provide solution tailored for a particular group of devices
  • Several sizes of VR images to exclude double vision. Best fit is proposed automatically.
  • Iterative UX testing on focus groups to provide easy on-boarding for general consumers not yet familiar with VR
  • Conversion-minded solution — each VR module is linked to particular products

In real life it is hard to track all the KPI that measure “how people say”, however, in digital world number of KPI is much more smaller, therefore it is possible to track a mood of a people, for example, based on how they wrote an email.
