Full Purchase

Below you will find 2 different major types of systems: Head-mounted display systems, 3d projection systems.  Each of the 2 main categories can greatly vary in price, capabilities, portability, footprint, etc.  Please contact the AI team with a rough budget and a set of goals to achieve and we’ll build you (and support for you) the best system money can buy.

Virtual walk through

Head-mounted Display, or HMD, systems utilize a fully immersive display worn on the users head.  This is the system that the Architecture Interactive team travels with as it provides the most portability, the highest level of immersion, and wide area PPT motion tracking allowing the user to walk around the 3D scene as one would in real life.  Single user systems provide full immersion for a single person while others see his/her viewpoint on a large screen for discussion and collaboration.

Use a PPT Wand to interact with the model and control features of the virtual reality system.

What can I do with it?

  • Architectural walk-throughs
  • Industrial training and prototyping
  • Military and disaster prevention training
  • Human behavioral research

Advantages

  • Highest level of immersion
  • Explore naturally and roam around freely
  • Conveys a real sense of size and shape of object
  • Physical locomotion cues aid spatial awareness

Limitations

  • HMDs have limited field of view
  • HMDs can get heavy over long periods of wearing
  • Minimum 10 x 10 feet space recommended

BIM in architecture

3D projection systems provide a collaborative experience with a multitude of form factors, prices, and applications.  3D projection systems include Powerwalls (large single screens), L-shaped walls, Corner projection systems, and full BIM multi-walled projection systems.  While these systems are typically permanently installed and have a reasonably sized footprint, they provide a semi-immersive experience for a large number of people. Bring your building or project to life right in front of your eyes.

Advantages

  • Cost-effective mid-level virtual reality solution
  • Meets demanding imaging quality requirements
  • Relatively small physical system foot print
  • No heavy headgear needed, no tethering wires

Limitations

  • Limited sense of immersion
  • Only one user can interact with virtual environment
  • Susceptible to ambient lighting conditions

What can I do with it?

  • Virtual prototyping
  • Manufacturing and design reviews
  • Academic research
  • Biotech research
  • Seismic interpretation and well planning
  • Computational fluid dynamics
