Fast Company: Enhancing Productivity Using Virtual Reality

Bringing virtual reality to architectural design, NBBJ partners with startup Visual Vocal to develop a cloud-based platform to facilitate better communication and decision making, reported Fast Company. Using the app, a smartphone and a simple viewer, anyone can provide feedback on a project in design by selecting preset options and/or recording audio comments. Being able to view design schemes in a 3D environment makes it more convenient for stakeholders to experience what a design could be like. "VR opens a big door to enable new kinds of dynamic and exciting interactions," said NBBJ managing partner Steve McConnell in the article.
