If you’re buying a new house that is being built from the ground up, chances are you’ve visited a model home, glanced over blueprints and mock-ups and daydreamt about your new palace. If it’s up to the guys at Virtual Reality startup Bricks & Goggles, all of that will be a thing of the past. Soon, people will wander around their new house in real time immersive virtual reality.
After playing around with the Oculus Rift DK2, founders Gertjan Leemans and Ingmar Vroege had the idea to visualize yet to build projects. After an enthusiastic architect jumped on board, the VR-startup was born. “Virtual reality is going to be a household name in designing new projects,” says Vroege. “Next to that I think Virtual Reality has a great future in education as well.”
