What is Virtual Reality? An ever growing area of technology, virtual reality is becoming more of a reality, the software and hardware to showcase 3D visualisations in realtime as a VR space are now at a point that they can be offered to the general public. At North Made Studio in Manchester we are dedicated to offering our clients the highest grade of experience and service, this is why we are heavily investing in Virtual Reality and are actively incorporating it into our live projects as much as possible.
Go Ahead, try the virtual reality below. Or try it on your VR device.
Virtual reality allows us to create a 3D visualisation of a space, be it a room or an exterior area (but it is usually a room) with a first-person viewpoint that allows the user to navigate the CGI visualisation as if they were standing within it. Using VR headsets (Oculus, etc) the user can stand within a 3D visualised room, look at it from all angles and even walk through it if they want to. However a headset is not always a requirement to utilise virtual reality CGI. We regularly produce VR experiences that are PC based, with the virtual space shown on a screen and navigated via a keyboard or gaming controller. Browser based virtual reality experiences are also available, allowing mobile devices (tablets, mobile phones, etc) to display an interactive VR scene that can be viewed in 360 degrees.
How would High-end Virtual Reality help your company grow and expand?
For property developers and house-builders our virtual reality visualisations can be utilised to create a realistic representation of a space that can be viewed in realtime. Just imagine allowing a potential client to stand inside the kitchen of a house they are interested in buying. Allowing them to move around in the space to see it from all angles, enjoying a complete experience of what their potential home would look like. All in the correct scale and with their specified decor.
The Virtual Reality Visualisations we create at North Made Studio in Manchester can be generated for any room in a home (residential), office (commercial), student accommodation or venue (entertainment & leisure). With a VR visualisation you can offer clients the ability to truly experience an area before any physical work has taken place.
Virtual Reality is an ever growing sector of technology, at North Made Studio we are constantly updating and upgrading our VR abilities. Ensuring that the latest Virtual Reality innovations are always available for our clients.
If you are bidding for a tender on a new project or just need to give your project an edge, Virtual Reality really is the next step up the ladder.
3D visualisations are an amazing way to showcase your intended vision, but allowing a user to experience these 3D representations of spaces/rooms through VR will truly make your projects stand out from the crowd.
Virtual Reality can be a huge advantage for estate agents or property developers looking to give their property marketing a little something extra to get buyers interested and make them seem a cut above the rest. For new developments or renovations our designers can create VR 3D visualisations of different rooms to give potential buyers to ability to see and experience that room in a photorealistic representation that is to the correct scale. Potential buyers can see spaces populated with furniture and see if that property will suit their needs. For off-plan buildings the Virtual Reality Visualisations can help to put buyers minds at ease, If they have experience the property in a virtual reality environment then they don’t have to worry about how the building will look when the build is complete.
Kitchen / Bathroom Virtual Reality Design
For new-builds we already offer the ability to generate CG imagery of proposed interior spaces (kitchens, bathrooms, lounge, etc) but with the added aspect of virtual reality these 3D visualisations can be taken to the next level. Not only allowing your clients to pick out the exact specification of the new kitchen or bathroom, but also experience it from within using a VR headset.
Living Room Virtual Reality
Arguably the most relevant room in a home for getting a user experience from, the living room is a space that any potential buyer is likely to use the most therefore offering the ability for that buyer to see & experience their potential living room in VR will give them a whole new perspective on the room and allow them to make sure that they are happy with how it will be once completed in the real-world.
Commercial Office Space Visualisation
For office spaces the virtual reality techniques we use at North Made Studio in Manchester will allow us to create your new offices in 3D and effectively allow the user to experience being inside the office. We can even personalise the experience to allow the user to experience what the office space would be like from the perspective of an employee sitting at their desk. Other commercial spaces such was student accommodation and leisure complexes can also be created in virtual reality. Producing a final VR product that can be used purely for marketing purposes. Offering an innovative advertising solution that will engage with potential end-users much more than imagery.
VR & Unreal Engine 4
To further progress and embrace the revolution that is virtual reality, we are continually investing into the VR sector and extending our resources and skillset to remain at the forefront of virtual reality CGI in Manchester. One of the ways we do this is to fully embrace the Unreal engine 4 format. The major benefit of working within Unreal is that the VR scenes can be viewed & experienced using popular VR headsets (Oculus) whilst also being outputted for use on PCs. Our adoption of Unreal has Opened up the market for our virtual reality property walkthroughs to be more accessible, and expanding the abilities of them to be interacted with the full six degrees of freedom. North Made Studio have a demo Oculus device in the studio, should you be unsure about the benefits Full VR could bring your property marketing just make an appointment to pop into the studio and experience first-hand what virtual reality in the Unreal engine 4 can offer.
