VR, MR, real time viz and the Augmented Worker – NXT BLD London, June 2017
Martin introduces the three ‘Rs’ — Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality — and how these technologies and others are driving a number of projects at Soluis and Soluis subsidiary, Sublime. Two projects that stand out in this compelling talk are a design viz project for Radisson RED that used Unreal Engine to instantly render images and movies, whilst making edits in real time, and the Augmented Worker, a project that explores the tools needed for effective use of AR on the construction site for digital job guidance, on site visualisation and more.
