Have just read your posting about VR in an open office – I just got my VR in at the back end of last week. My office is very open plan (about 200 people on the floor with the only division by dividers at hip height – & I’m only short!!) I too was pretty nervous about it (although that was in part to returning to work after 3 + months off sick) In my experience though, people have been pretty good about accepting it so far – in fact one of the problems I’m having is that people are so intrigued they keep on coming to look at it and ask me how its working that I’m getting very little actual work done!!!The first day I did feel a bit of a fool, but that went quickly – particularly with all the Madonna jokes about the headset and comments about the first sign of madness was talking to yourself…..
The only problem I’m having is with background noise affecting the recognition level of the kit, and I’m still trying to find a way around that. On balance, I feel it’s worth feeling a bit silly for an hour or two and then being able to work relatively pain-free, to sticking with the alternative. I’m a 24 year old graduate and for the last 6 months I’ve been feeling my was career was finished before it even started. Now I feel that there is some light at the end of the tunnel. That’s what getting VR has done for me – I hope it can do the same for you. Good luck
