Anyone play around with VR?



  • I am looking into the possibility for work. We make large industrial equipment and I want to see how feasible the technology is to be able to project our 3D cad models AR style. I've experimented with this some over the last few days and I can get it to work on my phone using .obj and .gITF files. I think the next step is to buy some goggles and see what I can do. Anyone use them for work or games?



  • AR or VR? These are totally different things.



  • Oculus Go with the kids, but that is all.



  • Hololens

    Hololens

    I was able to play with one of these one time it was really nice. The Holocene 2 is now out is even better but I have not used it yet.



  • @JaredBusch Ideally, AR



  • I read about the Hololens2 yesterday, it seems promising. The $3500 price tag isn't ideal but if it worked might be worth it. But I don't know how far I could test or confirm that a system like this found function for us without just buying it and testing it. It may have to end up being one a speculation cost if it doesnt work out, but all of this stuff is completely new to us. I think we have applications for both VR and AR, depending on the circumstances, but I think that AR is probably the harder one to pull off.

    From what I'm hearing, AR is starting to be used in a lot of companies for things like airplane mechanics. Making for smarter, faster reacting, remote hands.

    I don’t know of any AR better than hololens, even with the small view space of the first one.

    Yeah, for what it was/is... the hololens was amazing!
