Virtual reality in Sydney has the potential to change the way a range of industries work. Businesses across the city are starting to adopt the technology to let customers try out new products, or go for a virtual ‘test drive’. VR can expand education, taking hands on learning to the next level, allowing students to visualise themselves performing tasks they are learning. Virtual reality is also making big waves in the world of gaming and immersive adventure experiences.
However, it is perhaps in construction and real estate where virtual reality is having the biggest immediate impact. Sydney VR tools allow you to model and create objects and environments that clients can experience and interact with. Architects, realtors and property developers in Sydney can create a virtual reality experience of homes at Coogee Beach or a walk through of office space in Atlassian Tower at Central Station. Clients can also view the exterior from every angle, expanding the 3D capabilities of CAD technology.
There are many advantages to VR in Sydney. The technology may be in its relative infancy but it is already being used to provide immersive reality experiences in a range of industries. But before we find out how virtual reality is changing business, it’s probably a good idea to learn a bit more about the technology itself.
Our team of award winning VR designers, developers and CGI artists can help make your ideas a (virtual) reality. Whether you’d like to create a proof of concept to present to stakeholders or are ready to launch a full blown application to employees or clients then we can help. Give our team a call today and we’ll brainstorm your ideas and help formulate them into a defined plan with clear deliverables.
We specialise in building complex custom VR experiences and applications using the latest in game engine technology such as Unity and Unreal Engine. Bringing the latest in game engine functionality and features to help people experience real world environments. These platforms can then be used for a range of purposes from training and education to marketing and sales.
At its most basic level, virtual reality is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment and virtual experiences. Unlike traditional user interfaces, VR places the user inside the experience rather than just viewing a screen in front of them. So, rather than just seeing a picture of a new development in Manly, VR Sydney allows them to experience it as if they were actually there.
In order to achieve this level of full immersion, VR aims to simulate as many sense as possible, including vision, touch, sounds and even smells (although some of these are only in the developmental stage right now). The main way of interacting right now is through a VR headset. Pioneering technology such as sensory gloves may are not too far away but is more aimed at games than business VR in Australia at this stage.
Virtual reality differs from augmented reality in that it offers a unique immersive experience. With AR you still have one foot in the real world, with images overlaying the real time environment. In VR, the entire environment is created for you. So, rather than seeing how a piece of furniture or colour scheme might look in your Bankstown apartment, you can virtually step inside and look around a property from anywhere in the world. And you can alter virtual experiences to consider the time of day, seasons or even weather to get a clearer picture of the finished project.
This has major applications in the worlds of construction and real estate in Sydney. Imagine being able to show investors inside a new virtual Milsons point shopping development at the conceptual stage. Or being able to sell new homes in Bondi off plan using nothing more than a virtual reality tour. And a virtual tour that clients can return to as many times as they like. It’s an effective way to make emotional connections while reducing workload and the need for physical travel.

Everyone needs a break right? AR games are leading the way in pushing AR technology just as VR has advanced due to the gaming industry growth.
AR apps can act as a virtual guide showcasing a property and informing the future tenant or owner of the highlights and selling points of the space.
AR teleportation apps can literally open a door to anywhere in the world allowing a customer to walk through and experience a new destination.
There is a big choice of Sydney virtual reality software on the market. VR visualisation software allows you to create experiences that users can interact and communicate with in real time. Virtual reality content management systems allow businesses to collect, store and analyse content in a centralised location.
The latest software kits provide the necessary base to design, build and test an immersive virtual reality experience, and are the building blocks of any basic virtual reality world. There are also game engines, social platforms and training simulators that use virtual reality software.
A VR headset is a head-mounted device that provides the virtual reality experience for the wearer. Headsets are widely used by players of video games but are also used in other applications, including simulators and trainers. They are the main apparatus through which the virtual reality experience is provided to the user. As well as dedicated virtual reality headsets there are also apps in smartphones that can be utilised to provide a more basic but still effective immersive VR experience.
