INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital innovations are increasingly becoming part of everyday life. From hailing cabs with mobile apps or watching TV on the computer, to personal voice assistants such as Apple's Siri, Microsoft's Cortana and Amazon's Echo, nearly every aspect of daily life is now impacted by technology. No industry is exempt, including real estate - another market on the verge of transformation by digital innovators like Harlon Wilson from Carpenter Realtors®.

As the founder of one of the nation's first medical animation companies, he has an eagle-eye on recent advances in 3D imaging and virtual reality and their potential as tools for revolutionizing the real estate industry. Putting consumers in the (virtual) driver's seat of property tours is an idea fitting the aspirations for Harlon, whose company brought Hollywood-style 3D animation into the health and life sciences industries. His products empowered, educated, and engaged patients about the risks and complications of medical treatment. His latest foray into the 3D space seeks to do the same for real estate investors and homebuyers by transporting them into available properties via stunning 360 degree immersion experiences using a combination of Samsung's next generation Gear VR running on Facebook's Oculus Rift headset and the Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone. As a new investor and licensed Realtor®, Harlon is excited to be the first to launch true virtual reality (VR) property tours in the Indianapolis real estate market. Harlon's most recent listing, a custom-built log cabin nestled in more than 11 acres of serene woodlands 45 miles West of Indy, can now be experienced as a 360° tour for all users or users with Samsung's Oculus VR or Google's Cardboard headsets can be transported into the home via the magic of virtual reality (View the tour at: IndyLogCabin.com. "While the appetizing aroma of fresh-out-of-the-oven hot apple pie will be absent, you certainly can get a better look and feel of what it would be like to relax in this extra-ordinary home," Harlon suggests. "There's much to be said for 360 and VR technologies that transport the senses into the virtual space as opposed to simply viewing the lifeless experience of 2D imagery," he concludes.
