VR Brighton Meetup #9: VR/ AR for the built environment

January 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

This VR Brighton meetup takes place on 18 January 2018 and is the perfect opportunity to learn about new immersive technologies in the built environment and do some valuable networking.

Who should attend?

This event will explore how immersive technology is being used to explore, design, capture and collaborate around built environments. If you are from the construction or property development industry or just have an interest in AR/VR or BIM, then this event is for you.

Why attend?

We will have a fantastic range of speakers, ideas and, as always, expect lots of networking opportunities with VR and AR innovators, as well as the chance to have a hands-on play with demos.

A little more info

  • We will be proudly showcasing a Digital Catapult Brighton residents’ collaboration involving LIDAR data capture and room reconstruction for VR. Gareth Evans from LCE Architects, will describe how VR is being used in the early stages of a projects inception for design decisions and how this can be used for effective client/public engagement.
  • First Base, are property developers, who will share their insight into the state of play and possibilities for immersive tech within the sector, as well as, how it is starting to disrupt design, community engagement, sales, marketing and construction.
  • We will also have Head above the Cloud, coming in to demo and talk about their interactive immersive “indoor Google street view” virtual environments, and how they enable you to share the spaces you design or manage. And lastly, Phillip Hunt from Mobikats will be demoing his VR telepresence app for Construction, Project Management and Health & Safety.
