Auckland, New Zealand
asBUILT is one of the largest independent BIM (Building Information Modelling) consultancies in Australasia. As discussed in this blog post, the firm understands that virtual reality technology is key for BIM visualisation. But it was looking for a way to get away from the isolation of VR headsets and enable entire teams to experience digital assets - and an Igloo 7-metre cylinder provided the perfect solution.
The cylinder became the Engage360TM and is the first of its kind in New Zealand. It allows users to become truly immersed in digital assets - it’s the closest they will get to actually being there.
The cylinder is transportable, allowing asBUILT to bring Engage360TM to potential customers. So asBUILT took the system on a roadshow across Australia and New Zealand to show off the new tech, and you can see more about the 'Building for the Future' Roadshow on LinkedIn.
But don’t take our word for it - asBUILT has produced a great video to explain the benefits of Shared VR for the construction industry.
Used for controlling most aspects of the Igloo system, like triggering content, controlling playback and switching between content types.
An application that controls the Igloo wirelessly over a dedicated Wi-Fi network. Easily control different functions from tabs across the top of the app.
Back-end software that seamlessly blends all content from the multiple projectors in the Igloo. Corrects geometry and colour for an immersive experience.
