The Next Frontier in BIM: Virtual Reality in Architecture

When combined with the Oculus Rift and VRSCA, a mobile workstation, PocketCake's virtual reality services enable architects, engineers and builders to convey their designs in real space for a price comparable to traditional illustrations

KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 20, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —  Among the greatest challenges facing architects is conveying the look and feel of a project to a client. Simply put, traditional illustration practices are seldom as convincing as they need to be.

In working with many of the top architectural firms in the Midwest, we understand there are typically 10 to 20 aspects of a finished project that are different than a client had in mind. A virtual reality (VR) simulation of a 3D model can prevent such issues. In VR, the client occupies real space, walking wherever they want within the model. PocketCake can convert a 3D model into a stunning VR simulation in as little as 24 hours.

By using VRSCA, a mobile workstation by PocketCake, the architect and client can be immersed in a model at the same time, with the architect acting as a guide, pointing out potential problem areas or toggling between interior and exterior layouts.

VRSCA is optimized for frame rate frequency, capable of processing a simulation three times faster than any high-performance laptop, which can lag or overheat. VRSCA has all the power of a workstation at a fraction of the size, allowing you to easily and conveniently take VR to the client.

VRSCA also comes equipped with a remote hosting feature, in which multiple people can experience a virtual simulation across different locations, and a controller for navigation and changing spawn points and lighting effects within the virtual environment.
