I’ve talked a little about the VR room we have at Autodesk in Neuchatel. Our colleagues in Munich have been building something similar, yet on a totally different level: they’ve just officially opened their “VR Center of Excellence”.
And excellent it truly is – check out this video to see for yourself:
A lot of what you might assume is post-production in the above video was actually performed in real-time. And at 4K resolution, too! Extremely impressive stuff.
I really like what the Munich team has done. I’m hoping I’ll get the chance to poke my nose in on Friday, before the AEC Hackathon kicks off. We’ll see if I get the chance.
Going from the video, the experience appears way above and beyond what I’d typically demo in the Neuchatel office: our take is more from the perspective that VR isn’t all that hard, these days – you can get a very decent VR setup for a little over $3K, for instance – and that it’s something that can deliver significant benefits even for smaller companies, whether for collaboration or customer communication. But I’m glad that someone is taking a different tack and has taken the time to create such a “blow your socks off” VR experience. If I get the chance to take it for a spin on Friday’s trip, I’ll be sure to post something about it next week.
