Neilson’s ‘Have a Go Before You Go’ roadshow launched at the London Boat Show, where people could sample the wet and wild life on the water with a 360 degree VR experience of windsurfing at a sunny Neilson Beachclub. The tour also included winter sports inviting visitor from across the UK to don an Oculus Rift HMD, step onto skis, take hold of the poles and fully immerse themselves on the ski slopes of Andorra.
The roadshow travelled to several major cities including London, Birmingham, Brighton and Portsmouth. Neilson captured the instant expressions and reactions of those who were keen enough to try the experience.
