I recently got the opportunity to shoot a Matterport tour for a well known furniture retailer. They stock very high end furniture and have over 900 square meters of show space at the store I shot.
The client said to me they change furniture fairly regularly and asked how would we be able to update the tour with the new furniture.
The cool thing about Matterport is being able to re-scan specific areas of a space and then to upload that into the model for re-processing. So Matterport can do this.
The advantage of a high end furniture retailer having a Matterport tour is they are able to showcase to clients from any location. This means clients can enjoy the convenience of walking around the showroom without having to physically be there. This helps clients a lot with getting ideas for their interiors, whether the client is a designer, decorator or home owner.
I am hoping this is the beginning of the market acceptance of virtual tours, not just for the me-too sake of having them, but because they will add REAL convenience to clients and solve the transport, location and distance hassle of having to go to the showroom in person.
