VR – The Problem

Virtual Reality – great fun if you are the one wearing the glasses. Pretty boring if you are not.

Virtual Reality has a flaw – a big flaw: Only one person can view the Virtual Reality content at a time.

So, if you are the person sitting and waiting for the glasses to come your way in a meeting you may be downright bored. Never mind the wows and the exclamations coming from the viewers. For you it’s like watching a movie with your eyes closed.

While Virtual Reality is a great tool for design analysis, not being able to interact with the team at the same time makes it a lonely occupation and severely limits the practicality of using Virtual Reality as a design tool.

Even the work-around – watching the VR content on a TV screen – doesn’t work. One person is in the VR/3D space and everyone else is seeing a 2d representation of the space. That’s like having to watch a black and white movie while everyone else is seeing in colour.

But not any more……..

Creating an entirely new function meant creating an entirely new technology.

Team VR Design – Designers, Architects, Collaborators

So much more…
and so much less than before.

Software and hardware seamlessly combining to bring you a whole new way of design analysis.

Digital Frontier has created a hardware software combination that allows a whole group of people to enter the same Virtual Reality space at the same time and see exactly the same thing.

Teams can now walk through virtual design spaces together, be amazed together, comment together, and get down to the nitty gritty that is collaborative design critique.

Using the stand-alone Idealens K2 headset and a unique software algorithm, multiple headsets can be linked together to view the same content at the same time.

No wires. No Smartphone. No Computer. No Hassle. No More Boring Meetings.

Content

Content is as simple as copying the Virtual Reality MP4 file (exported from design software packages such as Lumion or 3DMax).

You do not need to get outside content providers to create content and the system will run any VR MP4 file in your libraries.

Compatible with 360° camera footage as well as design or CGI created content.

Simple: Render, Load, and View.

For the techies in your team

IDEALENS K2:
3s fast wearing, 90Hz ultrahigh refresh rate, 259g ultralight dead-weight, 120° oversized FOV.

Server Required:
Ordinary low-spec laptop or existing company server.

Technical information:
Intel Core i3 CPU (minimum), Integrated Graphics Card, 4GB RAM, Router similar to Netgear R7000.

Team VR Design Investment

Desire is tempered by outlay …. How much is this going to cost me?

One thing for sure: getting the Team VR Design solution into your design pipeline won’t cost you a million dollars or an arm and a leg.

And it won’t create any gray hairs in your tech team because it is plug and play – the software that runs the system is pre-loaded.
Hook it up and start making the coffee for the team.

And since it does not require a high-end graphics computer for every head set and does not use headsets that mortgage your life the investment required to get this up and running for your team is minimal.

Add more headsets, add more investment. Subtract headsets and lower the costs.

So, the investment required is tailored exactly to the size of your team.
