Our goal is to build an immersive technology solution that allows everyone to understand architectural drawings by experiencing them in Virtual Reality.
Architectural drawings can be difficult to understand for professionals and buyers alike. We are building a visualisation platform that brings these drawings to life in VR. Unlike traditional artists impressions or architectural models, with our solution you are completely immersed in an interactive VR experience, which can also be delivered on interactive 4k screens.
We have developed an innovative solution that solves a long standing communication problem in the construction industry. Using state of the art Virtual Reality headsets combined with photo-realistic 3d computer generated environments, we can put people in the proposed space, long before anything is built. ShowhouseVR brings BIM and CAD data to life by creating interactive 3d models of proposed buildings using development tools from the computer entertainment industry. This interactive 3d software package we create powers the Virtual Reality experience.
Buyers and investors can use a VR headset to visit a development before it is built and see what it is going to feel like to be there. They can customise design options and finishes in real time as part of the tour. This technology helps to drive early off plan sales before a marketing suite has been built on site. The automotive industry is leading the way in deploying VR experiences in the sales process and we aim to develop this technology to suit the needs of the construction industry.
The video below is captured from our technology demo. This is a fully computer generated environment running in realtime on high end GPUs. This illustrates the photorealistic lighting that can be achieved. Unlike fixed point 360 panoramas, rendering in real time allows you can walk around in the space and look anywhere you like. When you experience this by wearing a VR headset you are completely immersed in a virtual world that is so convincing you feel that you are present in the space.
