Rivergum Homes leads the way in SA with Virtual Reality app

Prospective homeowners looking to explore their dream home will be able do so from the comfort of their lounge room using Rivergum Homes’ new app launched this month.

Together with Ticketyview, we have created a virtual reality app for smartphones, which allows customers to experience our range of home designs in an immersive, 3D setting.

Customers simply have to download the app, pop on a pair of cardboard goggles and insert their smartphone into the front of the goggles. They can then virtually walk through Rivergum’s display homes, viewing all rooms, features and spaces through the goggles, guided simply by holding their gaze on where they would like to go.

The app, which is available on both Android and Apple platforms, allows users to explore Rivergum’s display homes room by room through the technology of virtual reality.

TelethonSA Lottery raises 2nd highest funds in history

After revealing the charity was facing closure in early 2017, Rivergum Homes offered to donate a house to the cause for the next 3 years, to continue the iconic South Australian TelethonSA Home & Land Lottery.

The TelethonSA Rivergum Home and Land Lottery at Playford Alive was drawn on Wednesday 20th December at Rivergum’s Pavilion Design studio, announcing a near record breaking amount raised of $1,027,290.

This figure is only the second time in the 37 year history of the lottery that more than $1million has been made, with the other occasion being when 21 charities participated. This year’s lottery had only 11 charities participating, and still came in as the 2nd highest amount raised – a great result for the charity.

Rivergum Group is incredibly proud to have helped TelethonSA achieve this outcome in what has been a trying year for the organisation.
