Srushti IMX supports Project 511
We’re proud to have supported Project 511, an initiative to help enable education for the less privileged.
Each year, Project 511 organises ‘Food for Change’, a charity dinner to help the cause.
There isn’t a single person on this planet who doesn’t know the name of the first person to step on the Moon. After all, being an astronaut is awe-inspiring. Astronauts see what a normal person can only dream of And we know that it’s not everyone’s cup of tea to explore the space. But what if we tell you that living a life of an astronaut is possible for everyone, at least virtually? Wouldn’t you simply jump at this opportunity?
Thanks to a company called SpaceVR which has designed the first virtual reality platform with the ability to share live 3D, 360 degree content from the International Space Station (ISS). Let’s see how it works? Space VR’s high-definition camera, Overview One, will be placed on the ISS’s observatory module, offering an astronaut’s perspective of the world to consumers.
Now living a dream in a virtual world can’t get any better! Virtual worlds are a simulation of environments where users, through customised avatars, interact with other connected people and with objects appearing on the stage. And Space VR’s project gives everyone the opportunity to realistically experience seeing the Earth in its entirety.
These days the virtual world environment is no longer restricted to games. They are also used as an effective tool for advertising, to raise brand awareness, enhancing social network platforms and at last to add reality to virtual environments (amusement parks, discos, universities, etc). Recently, the New York Times’ virtual reality campaign grabbed the attention of its readers. According to the company, its virtual reality app was downloaded more times in its first four days than any Times app before, and viewers spent an impressive average of nearly 15 minutes using it. It was a successful attempt on storytelling through virtual reality.
Virtual worlds leave an indelible mark on our brains of an experience we never thought can be true. That is what makes this technology an opportunity not to be missed!
Virtual reality (VR) has penetrated into every sector imaginable. Architecture being no exception. The introduction of new technologies, such as Oculus Rift, Google Glass and Microsoft’s Hololens, not only make these virtual experiences possible, but also are quickly becoming the next wave of how people will experience their daily lives.Read more >
