Virtual reality tools can be very useful in construction work, as they can allow design teams to collaborate and model in virtual space.
- So we're back in our VR cave.…VR stands for virtual reality.…And now, to many of you, this sounds like…a super nerdy topic, but we're actually…going to dive into some of the basics,…so you understand how this technology works,…and really, the implications that this has…for bridging something I call the visualization gap.…You see, most people just aren't very good…at translating two-dimensional plans…to three-dimensional objects.…They just can't do it very well.…They look at a set of plans,…and a site plan elevation drawing, or,…and they can't really translate it in their head.…
And that's really where I think…virtual reality bridges the gap.…Even the difference between viewing a model…on a screen in three dimensions…versus viewing it in virtual reality…on three dimensions is really dramatic.…It's a massive gap of a difference.…So let's just look at a couple of things.…And I brought out a few of our VR headsets…to explain how some of these work.…Because most of these work, I mean, they really all work…by putting a screen, like an iPhone screen,…
