Optus provides telecommunications and technology services to millions of Australian customers, businesses and government entities.
Optus will be showcasing a 5G VR Albert Park Track Tour.
The Optus 5G network is super-fast. It’s next-gen speed and capacity will be the catalyst in empowering a raft of future technology and innovation capabilities.
As part of our commitment to innovation, we’ve been testing VR (Virtual Reality) devices and Metaverse concepts on our super-fast 5G network. So, what better place to bring the speed of 5G to life than the home of speed, at the Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022 where we harnessed the power of 5G to deliver F1 attendees a free Optus 5G VR Track Tour showcase.
This truly immersive VR experience saw racing fans given the opportunity to experience a unique birds-eye view of Albert Park. Wearing a sophisticated HTC Vive Focus 3 VR headset, racegoers took pole position as they experienced an immersive 8K 360° tour of the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit with Optus Ambassador Chaz Mostert. The Optus VR Track Tour brought the metaverse to life, merging reality with virtual reality to create an exhilarating user experience.
