Shift Solutions, Sri Lanka’s leading creative digital agency recently used yet another innovative solution - Oculus Rift technology, to create an immersive brand experience for a leading bank in Sri Lanka. The Oculus Rift is a state-of-the-art headset that is designed by technology company Oculus VR to provide a virtual reality experience that is in a league of its own.
The Oculus Rift revolutionizes virtual reality (VR) and creates a computer stimulated environment that can simulate the user’s physical presence in different situations, settings and environments by using virtual reality.
