India’s home furnishings retailer HomeLane has created its own Google Cardboard-based headset to allow customers to visit virtual product showrooms.

“Wear these glasses and walk into a virtual world where choosing between colours and finishes, countertops and flooring options, appliances and accessories is as easy as pie,” the company said on its website. “It’s like having the entire showroom at your beck and call, and the freedom to mix and match options to your heart’s desire.”
