The VR Experience

EnvisionVR’s experience is different in 3 primary ways.  

 

Firstly, the ability to walk around freely in 1:1 scale as though you were exploring a physical space. Through our unique process we can preserve extremely high quality on mobile devices, meaning you do not have to compromise by either tethering the headset to a computer or reducing the quality of the model.  

 

Secondly, the technology accessible through mobile devices. This feature allows the user to explore in a more traditional way with our Clickable Mode or navigate the model by walking around in 1:1 scale with our AR walk-through technology.  

 

Finally, EnvisionVR’s software allows collaboration both face-to-face and remotely. The tablet can be connected to either a VR headset or a mobile device and controls that users experience. Thus, the tablet guides the user through the model and keeps them in control of the process. Our audio technology allows all parties to communicate when in different locations.  

Our experience is completely flexible and can be set up in whatever space you have available. The larger the space you have the more of the model you can view at once. We recommend a 4x4m area for the best viewing option.

Yes. EnvisionVR’s app can be downloaded onto Oculus headsets through Applabs.  

The VR headsets are designed to be worn with and without glasses. If you can see 2 metres in front of you without glasses, then the VR headset should be worn without. 

  

If you cannot see 2 metres in front of you without your glasses the VR headset can be placed over them. A glasses spacer is provided and can be fitted to the headset to prevent glasses from scratching the headset lenses. Larger framed glasses may not fit inside the headset, and we recommend wearing contact lenses where possible. 

People rarely get sick in the VR due to the headset’s 6 degrees of freedom tracking. The first VR headsets offered 3 degrees of freedom tracking, meaning you could look up, down and side to side in 360 degrees. Motion sickness in VR is caused by conflicting signals in the brain, for example seeing yourself move through a virtual world but being stationary in the real one. 

  

6 degrees of freedom tracking allows users greater freedom of movement as the headset tracks your physical movement back and forth, up and down and side to side in the virtual world. This reduces the feeling of disorientation minimising conflicting signals in your brain. 

No, unfortunately, the cameras on the VR headset cannot be used in direct sunlight. However, the tablet AR Walk-through mode can be used outside. 

You can experience our VR in the comfort of your own home with our FREE DEMO KIT. Simply request a kit to be sent to you and you can try our technology using our completed projects. 

If you have a headset or tablet you can also download the EnvisionVR app for free from the Oculus, Google Play and Apple Store.  

EnvisionVR also has a studio where you can experience the VR, or a member of our sales team can come to your office to show you, our technology. 

EnvisionVR’s software works on all high-end, modern tablets from 2018 onwardsFor the best experience in our AR Walk-through Mode we suggest the new iPad Pro released in 2020 which utilises lidar scanning. 

How it works & Getting Started

First you send us your project details including a 2D floorplan & elevations. A 3D model is then created by either your architectural visualisation firm or one of our partnered firms. Our team of experts then converts the 3d model to VR. You can then access the VR model through our app and view it either on a headset or on a tablet.  

Contact us for a quote. 

Once your 3D model has been approved it will take a maximum of 3 weeks to convert into the VR experience. However, we endeavour to work to our client’s program, so let our team know your deadlines and we will work with you to meet them. 

 

You can then view your project however suits you.  

  • Using a VR Headset 
  • Using a tablet  
  • As a clickable tour using a smart device

If you already have a 3D file of your model you can send that straight to us. If you don’t have this then we need your floorplan pdf and elevations for all the designs you would like created in virtual reality. If you have a DWG file this speeds up the process as well. If you are unsure of where to start get in touch and a member of our team can help you.

Design FAQ's

Yes. The way that we show different colour schemes is that we create your core model first and then add on colour schemes as variations. This means that you only pay for the core model once and then are charged a variation for the additional colour scheme. 
 
When your customers are in the model you can change the colour scheme with a simple click through our tablet interface. 

Yes, you can choose to show both the interior and exterior of the design 

If the change is a variation of the same plan it is charged as a variation cost as there are efficiencies that can be applied. However, if it is a different house altogether it is charged as two separate plans. 

Absolutely yes! We can organise to get drone footage of the actual view from the apartment and insert it into the model so that when customers are walking around the apartment, they are able to look ouover the balcony and see the view. Check it out here. 
 
If you already have drone footage you can provide these files to us and we can insert them into the model. 

 

Pricing
