Virtual Reality looks to play a major role in modern architectural design in 2018. Check out some of the top trends for VR in architecture below!
Unite, held recently in Austin, Texas, is the annual developer conference for Unity – the market leading platform for creating video games, simulations, and other interactive 3D, 2D and VR/AR content. Artists, developers, educators, filmmakers, researchers, storytellers came together in early October to gain valuable insight and inspiration. The Unite 2017 conference took place at the Austin Convention Center and included two full days of breakouts and a memorable expo. The entire Unity community experienced the excitement and inspiration of Unite around the world, as it was broadcast live directly from Unity’s studio booth located in the social hub [...]
Disney’s Epcot in Orlando, Florida is sometimes billed as a “permanent world fair.” In fact, the name Epcot is actually an acronym for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. The theme park showcases new ideas and innovations of what the world of tomorrow might look like. A few years ago, Walt Disney Imagineering had an ambitious idea to present a green, full-scale residential home to EPCOT visitors. The company partnered with Green Builder Media to design an exhibit that would immerse guests in green design and technologies. Drawing on the ingenuity of designers and the help of 12 different sponsors [...]

Think about your latest architectural project. Now imagine that you could walk through this not-yet-built concept, get a feel for the physical environment, and even look out the window. This amazing visualized experience is possible, and VR technology makes it all happen. Creating these visual experiences could not be simpler. Once the design team receives the model, they can upload it into the powerful Unity development engine to rapidly create architectural visualizations. Next, they outline a walk through, and the project is up and running! “We will start by outlining the purpose of the experience and create a walk [...]
Progress never comes from settling. Those who change the world do so because they look at how things are and envision ways they could be better. That’s how our company came about in the first place. 3D Revit files used to take days to complete. Often the rendered results were not user friendly, and yet many people settled. VIMtrek President Arol Wolford, however, sought to find a better way. Arol and his collaborators developed a platform based around the Unity game engine. It not only provided beautiful BIM models that rendered quickly, but also allowed for free movement and [...]
Driverless vehicles are currently all the rage in the tech industry, with every big Silicon Valley player hoping to take part in the autonomous future. Some AI researchers, like scientists from Intel Labs, are using the popular video game Grand Theft Auto to train driverless software how to better navigate in reality. As a result of its ability to provide information and create lifelike scenarios, gaming technology contains incredible potential that can be transferred to real world applications. Now, VIM AEC is tapping into that very potential to help architects, engineers, and construction (AEC) professionals get their jobs done. [...]
