Interactive and Immersive VR

Construction Administration

The ability to experience a new project in virtual reality has helped our industry answer the simple question – what will the design look like when it is built? Today, through advancement in tracking technologies, one can not only visualize but also interact with the virtual world using hand gestures that are reflected in the ‘game’.

VIATechnk’s Virtual Reality environments are created with interactivity in mind. Utilizing a motion controller, users can use hand gestures to select objects, change device properties, move objects, and much more. Through infrared sensors, hands are detected and a visual representation of the users hands are brought into the game. The interactivity and immersion in virtual reality allows our clients in the AEC industry to simulate construction logistics and evaluate design options, and get a feel for how the virtual space will be used in the real world. Working through virtual reality allows users to operate safely, make changes quickly and remove the need for costly physical mock-ups.
