Customers will be able to sit inside the Discovery Sport, look around, and fold seats down even though the car isn't actually there. How? With a program on their iPhone.

The technology hinges on the Durovis Dive headset, which you put an iPhone into while running an app.



You look through this headset at a weird cardboard box, and the app simulates the presence of a Discovery Sport.

Land Rover describes the system as being "immersed in a detailed photo-realistic 3D model of the New Discovery Sport." It's not photo-realistic really, but it still looks pretty good.



Check out a video that shows the system below.

Finally they use this, I remember Mercedes used some very similar tech for Mercedes CLA displays. Great way to show people what it's like with a simulator like that.

It is pretty cool. Just trying out the technology itself is cool, and if that gets them to totally check out a Discovery Sport then Land Rover is probably okay with that.

it beats anything else at the moment as they probably have yet to get a Discovery, this tech should be getting people interested enough to see a real disco in person.

If I were in the dealership I would probably check this out but I think it would be more to see what the virtual reality technology is like and second to check out the Disco Sport.

Interesting.

Usually it's the other way around.

I guess it depends on how good the virtual reality tech was. I just get the impression that the experience wouldn't be so amazing that it is really like seeing the Disco Sport. If it was though, then I would be excited for both, but if not, I wouldn't find a poor quality look at the Discovery Sport to be that exciting.

Nonsense, I can wait. Do you make purchase decisions from only looking at the brochure pictures? I certainly hope not, how is this any more advanced than that?

When did I ever say that I would purchase only based on pictures? No, I like to see what I am buying in person first. I wouldn't even visit the dealership for the VR tech, but if I was already there I would try it out.

When did I ever say I was speaking to you?

I mean you responded right after my post. If you weren't talking to me, who were you talking to?

Exactly, anyone really serious about getting one would ultimately want to see the real deal.

I wouldn't waste my time to make the trip out to see some simulator in person, rather see the real deal in one shot and accomplished a lot all right there and then.
