Dive into virtual reality
It's been a great year for Money Dashboard reaching a record number of users and helping more people than ever to be good with money. So we treated our team to a gadget lunch where the very cool guys over at Realise brought a fancy Virtual Reality headset and mind control drone for the team to experiment with while we all kicked back with some tasty lunch from Social Bite.
Mind control drone
The mind control drone that was brought in was by far one of the coolest pieces of tech we've seen here at Money Dashboard. A drone is connected to a sensor which then triggers programatic movements in the drone. The idea being that if you can concentrate really hard, the drone will fly higher or start to do pretty acrobatic summersaults.
The team also got to try the new Samsung Virtual Reality (VR) headset. This works with a mobile phone slotted into the headset and then users look through the googles at the fully immersive film clip to go through the 'VR experience'.
Lauren Pyle, Email Marketing Guru at Money Dashboard, had a go at using the headset and was blown away saying,
"It was really cool. I chose a Jurassic World experience, and a dinosaur came so close i backed up to the wall. So realistic and fun."
John Davidson, Head of Product at Money Dashboard, on having experienced the Avengers Virtual Reality programme:
'It was 'Marvel'-lous...'
