This years world summit is cannily themed ''The Fourth Industrial Revolution''. Klaus Schwab (founder of the World Economic Forum) shares that this revolution will disrupt almost every industry in every country: ''We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before. We do not yet know just how it will unfold, but one thing is clear: the response to it must be integrated and comprehensive, involving all stakeholders...''.
This revolution will continue to change the way we work, how we work, with whom and where. The possibilities are endless and emerging technologies like Virtual and Augmented Reality are key players. Putting on VR goggles and experiencing a stress reducing and performance enhancing fully functional virtual workspace anywhere you want is already a reality with the Breakroom by Mure VR.
And what about disrupting the design (process) of the workplace for you, the architect, designer, workplace strategist and consultants, dealer and your clients?! Imagine showing your clients through an Oculus Rift the interior design plans for their new space. Walking them through it, room by room. Moving away from the rigid 2d and 3d plans to a world where you can easily create spaces in tangible 360 digital reality.
This fully immersive experience will surely help you to communicate your designs better and ease the decision making process for the client because of the unlimited visual capabilities. Services like Iris VR make it easy to transform your Revit files into true-to-scale VR walkthroughs, bringing these new digital solutions to your workforce.
It's a bright future!
