Video tours of houses

Here is an idea I had when working for TSB in the 1980s, that to sell houses you could put the information on computers, and allow people to search by various attributes (size, price, location etc) and then see videos of the house as an aid to finding the one they wanted.

I then went on to suggest one could use virtual reality to re-decorate the house, plan a new kitchen etc. All this could then be sold to the customer along with the house and mortgage.

The world is only now catching up with me.
