Blue looks more professional. Multi looks more fun. I like fun! Get both let them pick the one they like. It could help you determine how to approach the sale.

Hi All,

You are not making this easy for me.

At the moment, my bias is to order both and use the blue or multi-color one depending on whether I want to evoke business (blue) or fun (multi-color) - or give someone a choice - as @frstbubble suggests.

I have a meeting Thursday afternoon (10 November 2016) with Unofficial Cardboard, so if you have thoughts on this topic, please share them by noon EDT tomorrow, Thursday.

Best,

Dan

Blue for office presentations and the like, multi for trade shows and other situations where you are not the only business showcasing their wares.

If both boxes work, it may not be possible to choose the "best" as we imagine a box in different scenarios.

The following is so far outside the box it's not even a box. Maybe it could work at trade shows if in the future you ever consider an alternative packaging solution ..




I'm not sure what that is but it's not a box and it's also a mystery. You could apply your own colors and design to a gift bag. Apple thinks outside the box. VR and Matterport in a way are outside the box too. The boxes you have are nice, but they're not that different from other product boxes you'll find on shelves.

A bagged product (grab bag) may stand out because it's a bag. I think people seem to like bags since a bag may remind them of gifts -- especially Christmas gifts.

Other benefits --

* A gift bag kind of like a present that in a way, you "unwrap." Here's a psychological study which says many people may associate gift wrapped things with joyous events since they've experienced joyous events in the past.
(The Psychology Behind Wrapping Paper)


* People may not only keep the bag but use it in a variety of ways. If your brand's on the bag, who knows who else will see the bag during it's lifetime.

* Maybe it's cheaper to put a VR headset inside a bag.

* The bag can also contain other fun stuff, such as colorful confetti, instructions and even a few candy kisses. Imagine folks at a trade show having fun seeing what's inside their "gift."

All that came to me from thinking - regardless of the box you create, it's probably been done before AND .. VR and Matterport are cutting-edge enough to demand a unique presentation that's outside the box. This might not work as a shipped product but I might check one out if I saw someone giving them away at a trade show. Perhaps gift bags that you "unwrap" do invoke positive feelings we don't understand.

Like @Metroplex360 says

We ordered both this week from Unofficial Cardboard.

We Get around got to use our multi-color VR Viewer at this event today (Monday, 12 December 2016).

Best,

Dan

P.S. Thanks again (all) for your feedback: multi-color = fun = events ...

Why hasn't the reviewer posted about the upcoming OSVR HDK2? Thats open source VR same capabilities as the Oculus upgradeable unlike the Oculus and evolving quickly with hand gesture etc oh and for much less money. Check the distributors out RazerZone. This should be on the radar of pcmag surely.
