Would you work in a VR office?

Recommended Posts

Would you work in a VR office wearing a headset all day? Personally, I don’t get how this is a thing. I’d feel so (literally) weighted down by the headset and distracted by the layered environments that there’s no way I could concentrate on work. But I am curious if anyone here feels differently.

I think I would. I already work from home, so all I would need is a VR headset to be able to work in that way. I don't know if I could do a full days work in VR though. Since I never had time with a VR headset before, I don't know how long I can handle wearing one. It's not like you have to be in a virtual space to work though, as I work in a Discord server, so we just join a voice chat for meetings and such. VR would be cool, but I don't think it's something really needed. Especially with webcams being around.

I love to try and wear them and play around with them as I never had a chance to do so 😉 However working in them ALllllllllllllllllllllll Day...?  NOPE

Just think the headache that I would get and the pain afterwords, I rather not thanks. You can get loppy and sick after awhile if you not going to take a break from it. I mean unless the paid is good. Still no for me.

Yeah I couldn't do it all day. Maybe a few hours. Most jobs tend to be the usual 9-5, so around 8 hours or so. Which I can see some people surviving in VR, but I can't see everyone doing 8 hours or more in one sitting. Of course you could probably take a break every couple hours, as I'm sure most jobs would give that to you anyway. 

I think it could be something we see more in the future. Especially with more and more people working from home. But like I said, a webcam and mic would probably work just as good for an office environment.

Agreed. Even I might rethink the situation if they come out with something that weighs next to nothing. But otherwise? No way, lol.

If reasonable money is in, and I am lectured extensively about VR and how to use it's equipments, definitely I will embrace the job, since it is a life changing type of job. But if nothing changes with what I've seen myself at the moment around metaverse, then I wouldn't work around any VR company, I'm just too skeptical to use any metaverse equipments.

I have been considering Working for a game company for a while now but I haven't had any opportunity made available.

If I am opportunity presents itself to work for a VR company and the pay is good I wouldnt mind that at all.

Just think what size room or office pace you need, I mean you be not sitting down, then again depends on what you are doing, playing cards games with your hands only 😉
