We have helped Dior create the first VR headset that include 3D sound
Could you both generate traffic on Dior corner shop and have some good PR around innovations ?
The best option for us was VR and a custom card board sounded like the best option. But as it was Dior we had to push it further they wanted a glowing Dior logo, we wanted to had 3D sound to the experience and we had only 4 month to ship 12 headset around the world.
HOW WE DID IT
This project was perfect for a Labs process how we do it usualy, we had 4 main problematics:
- Power management
- Logo Back ligthning
- Lens and image quality
- 3D printing material quality and surface finish
Each one could have an impact on each other. This lead us to solve them in paralel in a iterative way.
After the R&D process you endup with a working prototype that feet all the requirements, but as usual your are a bit late on the planning, that were the rush start… and you know you are in trouble when your desk looks like this, it’s a bit like having code not well organized.
